Bal Harbour Officer arrested for alleged sex crimes on minor
BAL HARBOUR, Fla. (WSVN) — A Bal Harbour police officer has been arrested by the sexual battery unit of the Miami-Dade Police Department.
The charges are not clear at this point, but a source close to the investigation tells 7 News, the officer, identified as 5-year Veteran Rene Guillen, sexually molested a young girl.
The event reportedly took place in April, but the girl only decided to tell her family now. It remains unclear what relationship Guillen had with the victim or her family.
