Yet another resident of East Hampton Town has been charged with rape. Omar Leon-Saldana, 19, is accused of having sexual intercourse twice with a 13-year-old girl, once in April at Cedar Point County Park, then again the following month at Leon-Saldana’s Bank Court home. He was arrested on June 25 on two felony counts of rape, due to the age difference between himself and the girl, and two misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a child.
When questioned before his arrest, Leon-Saldana allegedly made a tacit confession, telling police, “I felt guilty because she was so young. We had sex in my car at Cedar Point Park, and at my house.”
Police and East Hampton Town Justice Court have withheld any information about the alleged victim, because of her age and the nature of the crime.
Bail was set at $10,000, and was posted by Leon-Saldana’s family.
There have been at least seven arrests in the past few months made by the East Hampton Town police on similar charges involving alleged either teen or pre-teen female victims.
