Maurice Reyes – Sick Twist – Child Predator Busted by DNA


Orange County Sex Crimes Investigators used DNA evidence and video from two different surveillance cameras to track down a suspected predator in east Orlando.

46-year-old Maurice Reyes is accused of duct taping and gagging a four year old girl, after breaking into her home in the middle of the night.

Cops say DNA evidence found on beer cans that Reyes left at the scene not only connects him to the attack last week but also to a similar case in 2007.

“He breaks through a bathroom window… he goes into the child’s room, gags her with a piece of cloth,” said detective Rich Mankewich.

The suspect in the 2007 case fled when the child’s mother heard him in the house,

Mankewich says Reyes has a history of bizarre behavior. Three times in the 1990s Reyes was caught masturbating outside of homes as he peered in through the window.

Reyes sits in jail on no bond.

Mankewich says charges on the 2007 case are coming.
