A 37-year old Colquitt County man has been arrested after police say two young girls came forward and said they had been sexually assaulted. The girls, aged 8 and 6, told family that Bartolo Palma had sexually assaulted and raped them. The two girls also said they witnessed Palma sexually assault a 10-year old girl in front of them.
While the 37-year old is denying the charges, police say the allegations are backed up by medical evidence. Investigators say they believe the assaults had been occurring for around a year.
Palma remains in the Colquitt County Jail without bond.
