— More charges of sexual abuse involving a child were filed Friday against a Cary man first arrested last weekend.

Pedro Ventura Chavez, 33, of 304 Middleton Ave., faces new charges of first-degree rape and first-degree sexual offense against a child. He was arrested last Sunday on one charge of felony taking indecent liberties with a minor.

Arrest warrants list a 10-year-old girl as the victim. Sources have told WRAL that the girl had been abused for over a year.

Chavez was being held in the Wake County jail Friday under a $1 million secured bond. He has also been placed under a detainer by federal the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

    The guy who was caught forging prescriptions has a higher bond ( 5 million) why?

    Maybe if punishments were more severe along with non protection for these sickos, we won't be hearing cases so sickening such as these. I say throw the book at him!

    Are there no grown women interested in men anymore, every single day this same headline hits the papers. Every day some young girls life is ruined by some low life that enjoys the fullest protection of sick laws that protect their "sacred sick rights"
    Quit coddling criminals that tell society I CAN"T QUIT", castrate them if you're going to turn them loose in our neighborhoods among our innocent children. Enough is enough already!!!!!

    Not always. True pedophiles can only be aroused by pre-pubescent girls and boys.

    God bless.
