A Bal Harbour police officer was arrested Thursday and accused of molesting a 7-year-old girl, police said.
Rene Guillen, a five-year-veteran who works with the city’s motorcycle unit and who has a clean police record, was charged with sexual aggravated battery on a minor, according to the police report.
He was taken into custody after being arrested at the village’s police department, according to a police report. He confessed to sexually assaulting his young victim when she visited his home.
”He has never been disciplined by the Bal Harbour Police Department,” Bal Harbour Police Chief Thomas E. Hunker said. “He’s done a great job.”
