NAPLES, Fla.- Collier County deputies arrested 19-year-old Jancarlos Izquierdo-Matos Tuesday for lewd and lascivious battery on a person between the ages of 12 and 15.

Izquierdo-Matos is accused of giving the victim drugs and pursuing a sexual relationship with her at his residence on 39th Ave. NE. 

The investigation began in June of 2013. Deputies interviewed the victim at that time, who said the sex was consensual. Earlier this month however, the suspect denied any sexual contact with her, though he admitted he knew her age and considered her to be his girlfriend.

Izquierdo-Matos was located at his place of employment on Tuesday and transported to the Naples Jail.
