An Immokalee man was arrested for allegedly performing sexual acts on a child nearly 20 years ago, according to a Collier County Sheriff's Office report.

Deputies say a North Carolina woman, now 28-years-old, reported that when she resided in Golden Gate years ago, she was sexually abused by her aunt's live-in boyfriend, CCSO wrote in a report.

The victim says 45-year-old Frank Ortega abused her when she was between the ages of six and ten. Orgeta, who was in his mid 20's during the time of the sexual abuse is accused of routinely performing sexual acts on the child when they were left alone, CCSO wrote in a report.

Collier County Deputies and the victim agreed to conduct a controlled phone call to Ortega, where he was confronted about the abuse.

After the call, CCSO was able to establish probable cause for the arrest of the suspect for the charge of Sexual Battery.

Ortega was arrested on Saturday and remains in jail. His bond has not been set.
