Miguel Navarro – Repeat Sex Offender Strikes again while awaiting trial on the first charge

A Woonsocket man awaiting trial on charges he molested a 5-year-old girl in 2005, was charged Thursday with kidnapping an 11-year-old girl at knifepoint and assaulting her in a vacant apartment.

Miguel Navarro, 20, was arraigned in District Court in Providence. He faces charges of kidnapping and assault with intent to commit first-degree child molestation.

Police said the girl was walking to school at about 7:45 a.m. on Willow Street on Wednesday when Navarro approached the girl with a knife. Police said he took her to an abandoned apartment where he tried to rape her.

Police said the girl was able to escape after about 30 minutes. She went home and told her mother, who contacted police. Police found Navarro a short time later.

In 2005, Navarro was charged with kidnapping, sexual assault and child molestation, but the case was dismissed in 2006.

A short time later, he was accused of molesting a 5-year-old girl. Court records show Navarro was released from state custody in May 2006 after posting $40,000 bail.

Navarro’s mother, Brenda Navarro said police are just to pin something else on him.

“Why is he going to waste his time across the street — you know. Come on, that’s dumb, don’t you think so? I believe in my son 100 percent and I don’t care about any others,” she said.
