Police: Illegal immigrant threatened to kill, sexual assaulted Washington teen


WASHINGTON COUNTY, Pa. - Police in Washington County said an illegal immigrant threatened to kill a 16-year-old girl before sexually assaulting her earlier this year.

According to the criminal complaint, Roger Acosta Pagoada, of Honduras, met the girl on a social media website.

Investigators said the teen and Pagoada kept in touch via the Internet and texting, before arranging to meet one day in April.

Police said Pagoada picked the girl up from school, and was supposed to take her home. However, investigators said he took the victim to his apartment where he threatened to kill her if she didn’t have sex with him.

Afterward, police said Pagoada dropped the girl off at her home, again threatening her if she told anyone about the assault.

Investigators said Pagoada has history with police and remains in the Washington County Jail.
