Investigators say Figueroa told the girl God would be mad at her if she did not have sex with him.
SPRINGDALE -- Police arrested Angel Figueroa, 31, Tuesday for the rape of a 12-year-old girl. According to investigators, Figueroa met the victim at church, and told her God would be mad at her if she did not have sex with him. The girl described Figueroa to investigators as a very religious man, and told them the rape occurred when she was having a sleepover with his step-daughter. Figueroa's criminal history shows he has been deported in the past. He has family in Guatemala, and officers believe he is a high flight risk and have requested a high bond.
