SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Police are looking for a Guatemalan man in connection with the brutal rape of a 4-year-old girl Saturday, which has left the girl in serious condition at Baystate Medical Center.

According to Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney, Edlizar Mazariegos, 22, is wanted for aggravated rape of a child with force. Mazariegos, who has also used the name Edy Gonzales, is described as being 5-foot-3-inches tall, with a heavy build and was last seen driving a blue Dodge Durango with two white racing stripes down the hood and roof. The vehicle has a South Carolina license plate number of FSX-544, a dented passenger door and a novelty front license plate with an eagle on it, according to Delaney.

As of Thursday morning, police still had not located Mazariegos.

On Saturday, Mazariegos, who knows the victim’s mother, is thought to have brutally raped the young girl at 693 Carew St. The girl’s mother left for work in a blueberry field in Connecticut at 8 a.m. and didn’t return until 5 p.m., when she found her daughter crying and bleeding, according to Delaney.

The girl’s mother brought her to Mercy Medical Center, and she was transported to Baystate Medical Center to undergo treatment for severe trauma, according to Delaney.

At the time of the alleged rape, police said another man, Angel Santizo, 20, also of Guatemala, had been watching the girl. Santizo pleaded not guilty to a charge of permitting substantial injury to a child Tuesday in Springfield District Court. He was ordered held on $25,000 cash bail. During his arraignment, it was disclosed the U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs has placed a detention order on him on suspicion he may have been living in the country illegally.

Mazariegos had worked for a Connecticut farm, and has connections in Greenfield, Springfield and West Palm Beach, Fla., according to police.

Anyone with any information about the incident or Mazariegos is asked to contact the Springfield Police Department Special Victims Unit at (413) 787-6352, or submit an anonymous tip through the department’s Text-a-Tip program. The public can also report information by calling 911.

    Probably happens all the time in Guatemala…..then again on the other hand maybe it never happens there as they probably take them out and shoot them like they should.
