A Saratoga Springs man was arrested Friday on suspicion of sexually abusing a teenage girl.
According to Saratoga Springs police reports, the girl disclosed during a child forensic interview at the Children’s Justice Center that Falemao Pili Jr., 48, forced her to have sex with him multiple times.
When they were alone, the girl said Pili would force her to watch videos of people having sex before engaging in sexual acts including intercourse, according to reports. If she refused, Pili would reportedly hurt her by pulling her hair or pushing her down stairs. He also reportedly threatened to kill her with a machete if she told anyone.
Pili was arrested in Lehi on suspicion of first-degree felony counts of rape, object rape, forcible sodomy and aggravated sexual assault. He was also arrested on second-degree felony counts of forcible sexual abuse and sexual abuse of a child.
