The GBI arrested and charged Erik Otoniel Ramos Perez, age 24, of Pearson, with rape, aggravated child molestation, kidnapping, home invasion in the 1st degree, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, two counts of false imprisonment, tampering with evidence, and obstructing persons making emergency telephone calls stemming from an incident involving two children that occurred on Saturday, April 29, 2023.



The Homerville Police Department requested the GBI investigate the incident after a 911 call was received regarding a child having been sexually assaulted at a home in the 400 block of Old Fargo Highway in Homerville. The child was initially taken to Satilla Memorial Hospital, then taken to Savannah Memorial Hospital due to the extent of her injuries. A second child was at the home at the time but was not physically injured. Perez was later taken into custody following a traffic stop by the Clinch County Sheriff’s Office and the Atkinson County Sheriff’s Office after a “Be On the Lookout” was sent out by the Homerville Police Department. Perez is currently being housed at the Coffee County Jail.



This investigation is active and ongoing. Once the investigation is complete, the case file will be given to the Alapaha Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office for review and potential prosecution.
