Georgetown police say the Division of Family Services informed the department that a 13-year-old girl had disclosed that she had been sexually assaulted by 35-year-old Ronaldo A. Gonzalez. According to police, during an interview with the Children's Advocacy Cente the child stated that Gonzalez had digitally penetrated her in October 2008.
