A U.S. Marine, stationed in Louisiana, is currently in custody in Florida after investigators say he had “intercourse” with a 14-year-old girl he had met on a social media app.
Just before 8 p.m. on Wednesday evening, dispatchers with the West Melbourne Police Department received a call from a woman who claimed her 14-year-old daughter had gone missing. The woman, whose name has not been released, said she had seen the girl at approximately 8 a.m. that morning but had not seen her since. Police classified the girl as a “runaway” and began an investigation into her disappearance.
The woman stated that she had picked her daughter up from an America’s Best Value Inn “on a different date,” a court document stated, and she had gone through her daughter’s phone to try and determine where she might be and with whom. The girl’s phone allegedly revealed that she had met Sean Michael Rudziewicz, a 22-year-old U.S. Marine, on a video chat app called Omegle. As their correspondence progressed, Rudziewicz suggested they continue chatting on other apps, such as Discord and Snapchat “to further the relationship,” a police report stated.
During one of their recent conversations, the girl reportedly suggested that Rudziewicz come out to Melbourne, along the eastern coast of Florida, for a visit. Rudziewicz agreed and flew into town on January 16. While there, he took the juvenile “to the movies, the mall, and the beach,” the police report claimed. . .
Rudziewicz was, in fact, arrested and booked into Brevard County Jail, where he is being held on $70,000 bond. He has been charged with lewd or lascivious battery to a victim 12 to 16 years of age and interference with child custody, Law & Crime reported, and is scheduled to appear in court again on February 23. Rudziewicz has claimed that the victim had previously told him that she was 18.
