A Guatemalan man is being held at the Mesa County Jail without bond on charges of sexual assault on a child.

According to an arrest affidavit, 23-year-old Jorge Morente–Tisa had sex with a girl under the age of 15 at least twice while another teen was in the room.

Authorities say Morente–Tisa lied about his age to the victim and told her to lie about her age if police ever asked.

He is also being held on an immigration hold.
