Santiago Martinez-Flores, 48, arrested in Southern California

KOIN 6 News Staff - CLACKAMAS CO., Ore. (KOIN) --- A man wanted for sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl in February was arrested in California on Wednesday, deputies said.

Santiago Martinez-Flores, 48, was wanted for burglary and sexual assault in connection with the February 26 incident at Clackamas Trails Apartments in unincorporated Milwaukie, according to Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.

He was detained at the California/Mexico border, about 15 miles outside San Diego, by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

He is being held at the San Diego County Jail. A Clackamas County detective is traveling to California to interview him and officials are working on the extradition process.

The 9-year-old victim was reportedly asleep when Martinez-Flores assaulted her. She described the suspect as an unshaven Hispanic man wearing a yellow, grey and black striped beanie.

Investigators said they were able to identify Martinez-Flores through physical evidence.

He was known to use the aliases "Felipe Coeto" and "Isidro Ramos Flores". He has a lengthy criminal record dating back to 1994, deputies said. He was deported to Mexico in March 2001 after serving 2 years in the Oregon Department of Corrections.
