Man Molested Niece Many Times; Shot Her Grandfather Dead who Confronted Him During Robbery in Miami

A man was apprehended in connection with the tragic incident that occurred in Little Havana on Thursday morning. Additionally, he faces charges related to the molestation of a child, who bravely identified him following his capture later in the day, according to authorities.

The arrest and identification of Carlos Manuel Rosales, 38, marked the dramatic end of a daylong pursuit between the suspect and law enforcement. The intense sequence of events unfolded with a shooting incident, witnessed by Rosales’ step-niece, initially mistaken as a mere botched home robbery.

After reviewing surveillance footage, authorities were able to apprehend Rosales and bring charges against them. The charges include second-degree murder with a weapon, as well as counts of child molestation and lewd and lascivious exhibitionism.

He was taken to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. The bond has not been set at this time. “The identity of the offender was not known to her until we began questioning her at the police station, following the arrest of Rosales,” Vega explained.

Witnesses and police reported that on Thursday morning around 8 a.m., an individual wearing long sleeves and a hoodie entered the apartment shared by Rosales’ 11-year-old niece and her mother on Southwest Fifth Street. The young girl, who was alone at home, quickly sought refuge in her mother’s bedroom and urgently contacted her mom. Her mother then reached out to her grandfather, who happened to be at a nearby laundromat.

A brave individual, Luciano Matute, 62, swiftly made his way to the second-floor apartment and fearlessly confronted the masked intruder. Tragically, he was then subjected to multiple gunshots to the chest. A shooting incident occurred in front of several witnesses, including the granddaughter of the victim.

This incident prompted numerous neighbors to come out of their apartments and contact the police. Matute was discovered unconscious at the bottom of the staircase and was later declared deceased. Authorities do not believe that Matute was familiar with Rosales prior to the shooting incident.

According to witnesses, the individual entered a white Toyota Tundra equipped with black rims. Police have confirmed the incident with the assistance of video footage from a closed-circuit camera, which also aided in obtaining the license plate number. In the late afternoon, law enforcement discovered the Tundra at a residence in Little Havana. Shortly thereafter, Rosales was apprehended in the vehicle at a nearby intersection.

According to the police, he admitted to the murder, but denied any involvement in the sexual assault of the child. The victim positively identified the individual when presented with a photograph of him by the authorities at the police station, according to the Miami Herald.

According to her statement to the police, Rosales had been engaging in inappropriate behavior towards her since she was 8 years old, including exposing himself to her. According to her, he typically engaged in this behavior in his apartment, either when they were alone or when other adults were preoccupied.

The young girl also informed the authorities that Rosales had recently attacked her just two days prior to Matute’s tragic death. According to her account, she started screaming when Rosales began touching her inappropriately, causing him to flee.

According to Vega, the police currently believe that Rosales, who had his face covered, was attempting to steal items from his sister-in-law’s house. However, he was taken by surprise when he discovered his niece present at the scene.
