Jason Robyor of Boynton Beach, Florida was arrested Saturday after he reportedly admitted to police that he sexually assaulted a 7-year-old who slept at his home last week. His relationship with the child is unclear.
Robyor, 36, is charged with one count of sexual battery on a minor. He is being held without bond at Palm Beach County Jail and was ordered not to have any contact with anyone under 18. It is unclear if he has acquired the services of an attorney.
According to the arrest report, Robyor told investigators that he was sharing a bed with the victim when the assault occurred. The 7-year-old reportedly woke up at night after feeling Robyor’s inappropriate touching, but he continued until the early hours of the morning when he went to work.
Robyor insisted that the assault only happened once and that “it was a mistake.” Records show the victim was taken to a treatment center to be examined for signs of sexual assault, but the results have not been published.
Another case of sexual assault involving a victim under 12 was reported in Davie last week. German Martinez of Sunrise, Florida was arrested two weeks ago for allegedly assaulting a 9-year-old at a hotel he managed.
Martinez, 41, is charged with lewd or lascivious molestation of a minor. He is being held without bond and was ordered to have no contact with any minors. The press did not name an attorney for him.
According to the police report, the assault occurred earlier this year at the Holiday Inn located at 2450 Davie Road. Martinez was a manager at the hotel and the victim’s mother works as a housekeeper. The child went to work with her mother because she was sick on that day and did not go to school.
While her mother was working, the victim used a computer in the hotel’s business center. She later told her mother that Martinez walked into the room several times and touched her vaginal area in a sexual manner while she was using a computer.
State records show Martinez is a registered sex offender who was convicted of several counts of lewd or lascivious conduct against a minor in 1995. He has reportedly worked at multiple hotels across Broward County and investigators are asking any other victims to come forward.
A spokesperson for the hotel released the following statement to the press regarding the incident:
“Our thoughts are with the victim and her family during this time. The allegations surrounding the arrest of this individual are very serious. This independently owned and operated hotel terminated the employee and is cooperating fully with authorities.”
Lewd or lascivious molestation occurs when an adult touches the buttocks, breasts, or genitals of a minor in a sexual manner. It is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The defendant can be charged with multiple counts of lewd or lascivious molestation even if there is only one victim. The prosecution can file a multi-count indictment if the defendant sexually assaulted the victim on more than one occasion.
