Rochester Man Arrested for Having Sex With Minor
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man was arrested early Sunday for having sex with a 14-year-old boy.
Rochester Police Capt. John Sherwin says 20-year-old Efram Ciavarelli responded to a profile on the Grindr app that was posted by the boy.
Sherwin says the two were in the teen’s bedroom naked and having sex when two apparent younger family members came in. They had called 911 when they saw a strange vehicle at their residence and went to the teen’s room with a knife, thinking a burglar was inside the home. They had also taken a picture of the man’s license plate and gave that to officers.
Ciavarelli was gone when officers arrived but they later found him at his residence and arrested him on a 3rd-degree criminal sexual conduct charge and two other counts.
Sherwin says he told the officers he thought the teen was over 16-years-old.
