BROOKLYN — A man who forced two children to have sex in front of him in Prospect Park then filmed himself raping one of them was sentenced to more than 108 years in prison, prosecutors announced Wednesday.
Natalio Canete-Perez, 25, from Kensington, persuaded a 15-year-old boy to have sex with a 12-year-old girl whom he later raped in Prospect Park on June 11, 2014, according to the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office.
Canete-Perez had used Facebook to pose as the girl — whose family lived in his family’s building and whom he had raped twice before — and make plans with the boy to meet in the park, the DA said.
The defendant also posed as a teenage girl on Facebook in May 2014 to bully a 10-year-old girl into sending him lewd photographs of herself, the DA said.
When he told the girl in that incident he would publish her pictures if she did not send him more, she told a relative who called police, according to the DA.
Police mounted an investigation and arrested Canete-Perez in September of 2014.
Canete-Perez was convicted of predatory sexual assault and sexual abuse, among other charges, in Brooklyn Supreme Court in November of this year, the DA said.
“This defendant is a sexual predator who targeted young children,” said Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez. “He is clearly a danger to society and has now been held accountable for his depraved criminal acts.”
Canete-Perez’s attorney declined to comment.
