PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — A Panama City man was arrested after a young woman came forward and said he sexually abused her when she was under 12, according to court records.

Jesus Joel Moran Rivas, 25, is accused of committing the abuse in 2015 and 2016. The girl told investigators he threatened her if she told anybody about the molestation, the report states.

The victim told investigators that she was coming forward now because she was having flashbacks and “felt safe” after moving away from Rivas.

Rivas is charged with lewd or lascivious molestation and attempted sexual battery of a victim under 12.
