Paramedic charged in sexual assaults of 2 10-year-olds

August 9, 2019

UXBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A paramedic in central Massachusetts has been charged in the alleged sexual assaults of two children.

Authorities say 45-year-old Abraham Rodas, of Douglas, was arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under the age of 14.

WCVB-TV reports that Rodas, an emergency medical technician with the Uxbridge Fire Department since 2005, is a suspect in the 2018 assaults of two 10-year-old children. Investigators say the assaults occurred at Rodas’ home.

Rodas was released Friday on $10,000 bail. His lawyer told the court he is a diabetic on a waiting list for a kidney transplant.

Police and the state Department of Children and Families are investigating.
