Florida deputies searching for man accused in rape of 2-year-old girl

COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — A sheriff's office in Florida is asking for help finding a man wanted for brutally raping a 2-year-old girl, leaving her in critical condition.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help finding Roberto Lopez, 40, who they say raped a 2-year-old girl, leaving her in critical condition.

He is wanted on a charge of sexual battery on a victim under 12. It's unclear how he and the little girl came into contact with each other.

They say Lopez is know to go to bars in the area of N. 2nd and Azteca and is normally picked up for work at Camp Rojo, according to the sheriff's office.

"We need your help in locating this Animal ... This guy is pure evil and does not need to be on our streets," deputies wrote in a Facebook post.

Anyone who knows where Lopez may be is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff’s Office at 239-252-9300 or the Hendry County Sheriff’s Office 863-674-5600.
