A Reno man is behind bars for sexually assaulting a minor for several years, according to the Reno Police Department.

Sgt. Curtis Lampert says in March 2018, a 21-year-old female victim reported that she had been sexually assaulted multiple times between the ages 12 and 16.

The victim told police that sometime around 2009 she was introduced to the suspect, Sergio Sotomayor Amones, 58, through a mutual friend.

Amones began providing the victim with money, marijuana and rides to and from various locations, says Lampert. Police say these behaviors eventually evolved into sexually assaulting the teenager on more than one occasion.

The Reno Police Department believes there may be more unidentified victims linked to this case. If anyone has any information regarding Amones or other possible victims, you are encouraged to contact the police department at 775-657-4601 or Secret Witness at 775-322-4900.
