NAPA -On October 16 a report came to the Napa County Child Welfare of possible incidents of child molestation. Shortly after the welfare department contacted the Napa Police Department about the incidents.

It was also reported that the child involved was still in danger and that they “required an immediate response.”

An investigation was immediately conducted including a “child forensic interview.”

Just after 5:00 p.m. 35-year-old Flemin Fernando Martinez was arrested near Laurel Street and Griggs Lane.

After an interview at  the police department, Martinez was taken to the Napa County Department of Corrections and booked for the charges of –

  • forcible rape of a child 14 years old or younger;
  • oral copulation of a child 10 years old or younger;
  • lewd and lascivious act with a child;
  • continuous sexual abuse of a child under 14 years old.

Investigators are also pursuing leads that Martinez may have been the perpetrator in a 2011 sexual molestation case.

The Napa Police Department announced, “Due to the apparent access Martinez had to children while living in Napa, the Napa Police Department is requesting members in the community contact us as soon as possible if they believe Flemin Fernando Martinez may have had access to their children.  Martinez lived in the City and County of Napa from approximately 2010 to present.
