A 72-year-old North Platte man is in jail after he allegedly sexually assaulted two girls at his apartment.

On June 4, North Platte Police opened an investigation into a sexual assault after receiving a complaint from a 12-year-old female, that she and her 13-year-old friend had been sexually assaulted.

Both juveniles were interviewed at separate Child Advocacy Centers, and stated that, on June 3, they had been swimming at the apartment complex located at 221 West Francis.

They say Francisco Garcia invited them up to his apartment.  Once in the apartment, the girls said Garcia paid them to perform a sex act and sexually assaulted them.

Following further investigation, police determined that there was probable cause to arrest Garcia and charge him with two counts of 1st degree sexual assault of a child.

An investigator met with Garcia on August 12, and placed him under arrest.

He was jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.

    Let’s leave the establishment where he used to work out of this, please.

    He ALWAYS sexually harassed me and because i loved my job i didnt say anything and would just walk away or laugh it off(sadly). Once he got the hint he was always mean to me and ended up firing me right in front of guests! He wouldnt stop touching all the other women employees. Hed always ask all the girls(whether underage or legal) to drink with him and spoke sexual to all of us!!!!!!! He was a nightmare to be around.

    You know what this man is very loving. Wouldn’t hurt a fly. I highly doubt this is true at all. So keep your comments to yourself. Frank would give the shirt off his back to anyone in need of it. So back off. If this isn’t true those girls disgust me for putting this man in this position.

      So if it is true, are you gonna stand by your comments about your loving, shirt giving, non fly hurting pal? If everyone else has to keep their comments to themselves, why don’t you?
