Homeless illegal immigrant faces new charges in rape case


A homeless man charged with raping a 4-year-old girl faces new charges after Collier County investigators learned he gave them a fake name.

Carlos Eduardo Alfaro was arrested March 22 under the alias Tito Zavala. He was working for an area day labor company, according to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators charged him with raping a girl whose family let him sleep under their trailer porch on Bayshore Road just east of Naples.

Alfaro is a convicted sex offender in Virginia, where he was sentenced to five years in prison, the sheriff’s office reported. He served one year and was then deported back to El Salvador.

In December 2003, he reappeared in Virginia and was deported a second time as an Aggravated Felon.

Collier deputies have now charged Alfaro under his real name, and they’ve also charged him with failing to register as a sex offender and providing false information to authorities.

He faces life in prison if convicted of the most serious charge, sexual battery on a child under age 12.
