An illegal immigrant in North Augusta was charged this week with forcibly raping a young girl several times at his home.
He is being held for immigration officials, according to the jail website.
A week ago, a woman called North Augusta police to say her child recently confessed that Diaz-Ventura had sexually assaulted her at his home several times. The sexual assaults allegedly happened between 2014-2016 when the girl was 4 to 6 years old. A police report labeled the crime as “forcible rape.”
Previous arrests. Diaz-Ventura has seen the inside of local jails before, getting arrested in Aiken County in 2010 for driving without a license and for driving without a license or insurance in Richmond County in 2013 (right mugshot). He was given probation in Richmond County and fines in Aiken County, and he was released in both cases.
Readers of AugustaCrime.com are already posting comments after his arrest was posted Thursday:

- C.T. Pryor: “He shouldn’t have been here in the first place to commit the acts.”
