Former RP Resident Charged With Sexual Assault

Edwin Antonio Flores-Solano, formerly of Roselle Park, was charged last week by authorities in Deltona, Florida with committing unlawful sexual acts and not informing the victim he was HIV (Human-Immunodeficiency Virus) positive. Flores-Solano, 46 years of age, is currently being held in the Volusia County Jail on $25,000 bail. The victim in that case told police that Flores-Solano sexually abused her from early 2008, when she was 17-years-old living in Roselle Park through early 2012 while she was living in Florida.

Over the last week, RPPD Detectives were assisted by Volusia County Sheriff’s Investigators in gathering enough evidence to warrant charges here in Union County. On Friday, November 30, 2012, Flores-Solano was charged with Sexual Assault, Sexual Assault by force and committing acts of sexual penetration knowing that he is infected with HIV. Bail was set by a Union County Superior Court Judge at $400,000. Solano-Flores was served with the warrant while in custody in Volusia County, where he remains pending an extradition hearing.
