Sex Trafficking Investigation-Town of Manchester
On Thursday November 28, at 10:44pm, the Green Lake County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a juvenile runaway. The victim stated she escaped from a residence where she was being sex trafficked. The victim was located on the side of the road and rescued by a Deputy. The victim was able to provide additional information that started an investigation. Subsequently a search warrant was executed on the residence on Friday November 29 at W2964 County Line Road in the Township of Manchester. That search warrant produced a number of evidence items believed to be connected to the sexual assault of the juvenile. The investigation and search warrant also included the arrest of 6 suspects who reside at W2964 County Line Road. The suspects are Esler Hugo Rivera male 33 years of age, Rolando Corado Gonzalez male 28 years of age, Avelino Sarceno-Sarceno male 40 years of age, Ember Rivera male 37 years of age, Noe Bautista-Martinez male 28 years of age, and Evis Amabilio Garcia-Rivera male 31 years of age. All parties have been arrested for 2nd Degree Sexual Assault.
Evis Amabilio Garcia-Rivera is suspected of trafficking the juvenile female within the residence amongst the suspects. All of the suspects are believed to be undocumented immigrants from Guatemala. The suspects have made court appearances, and they are currently being held at the Green Lake County Correctional Facility on cash bonds that vary from $20,000 to $50,000.
The suspects involved have not yet been criminally charged and all parties are innocent until proven guilty. This incident remains under investigation by the Green Lake County Sheriff’s Office and the Division of Criminal Investigations of the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
