The arrest report states that the victim told detectives that Morillo “made several advances towards her, some sexual in nature, but she refused all of his attempts.”

As she was intoxicated, according to her own account of the incident, she located a room in the house to sleep by herself, yet found herself  “waking up nude on the bed, with Erick Morillo standing on the side of the bed also nude.”

Erick Morillo denied the accusations but has been arrested after he turned himself in with his attorney to face his sexual battery charges. He did so following the results of a rape kit that tested positive for Morillo’s DNA on Wednesday August 5th 2020.
