A man held by federal authorities was returned to Hall County to face charges of rape and aggravated child molestation, police said.

Oakwood Police began investigating in August 2018 when a girl under the age of 10 disclosed she had been molested by two men over the course of several months at an Oakwood apartment.

Police interviewed all of the parties involved and charged Herson Aguilar-Sanchez, 19, in September. Herson Aguilar-Sanchez was indicted in October on charges of aggravated child molestation, aggravated sodomy, child molestation and first-degree child cruelty.

Herson Aguilar-Sanchez’s attorney Chris van Rossem declined to comment.

Police continued to investigate another man, Edin Abisai Sanchez-Aguilar.

“Oakwood officers worked with officials from Immigration (and) Customs Enforcement during the investigation, and both suspects were charged by immigration officials with federal immigration violations,” Templeton wrote in an email.

Herson Aguilar-Sanchez was held at the Hall County Jail while Edin Sanchez-Aguilar was in federal custody.

Oakwood Police obtained arrest warrants for Edin Sanchez-Aguilar Feb. 12 for aggravated child molestation and rape.

Edin Sanchez-Aguilar was booked Monday, May 20, into the Hall County Jail.

No attorney was listed for Edin Sanchez-Aguilar with Hall County Magistrate Court.
