Charlotte, NC Mother Stops Attempted Sexual Assault of 4 Year-Old Daughter

by GLENN COUNTS / NewsChannel 36

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A Charlotte man was arrested early Wednesday morning, accused of trying to sexually assault a young girl.

The mother of that 4-year-old agreed to speak with NewsChannel 36 about the ordeal. We are not identifying her and spoke with her through an interpreter.

She is still trying to come to terms with the close call that happened at the Granville Apartments off of North Sharon Amity Road. That mother says she went to the restroom around 2:30 a.m. and when she came out, she saw a strange man standing over her daughter.

“She said he had taken her skirt off, her underwear,” the interpreter said.

That mother says she defended her daughter by attacking the suspect, and when he tried to escape her brothers held him down until police arrived.

Dario Orozco, 25, was arrested and charged with indecent liberties and sex offense. Investigators say Orozco is a neighbor and had been invited to the home by an uncle. However, the mother says she doesn’t know him.

“She said she had nothing to do with him,” the interpreter explained. “She never saw him before so she doesn’t know him.”

The mother says her 4-year-old never woke up and is doing okay. However, she is worried about Orozco getting out of jail because he allegedly threatened her and her daughter before police arrived.

Orozco’s bond has been set at $50,000.
