A Long Island man was arrested Saturday and is behind bars after police said he raped a preteen girl in Greenport, according to a Jan. 26 report in the Suffolk Times.

Erick Ramirez, 20, of Greenport, was arrested by Southold Town Police and charged with first-degree rape and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police said an investigation revealed he had sexual intercourse with a 12-year-old girl, which resulted in his arrest on Saturday.

Ramirez was held overnight in police custody and faced a judge Sunday morning for arraignment. A judge ordered bail set at $250,000.

Officials said Sunday that Ramirez did not post bail and was being held at the Suffolk County Jail in Riverside.

The Department of Homeland Security, police said, also issued an immigration detainer, which notifies local law enforcement agencies that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents intend to take custody of an inmate who entered the country illegally.
