A 25-year-old South Carolina man is being held in the Rutherford County Detention Facility facing several sex charges.

Uriel Rodriguez Salinas, 25, of Julian Avenue in Greenville is charged with two counts contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile; indecent liberities with a child and statutory rape/sex offense of a defendant six years younger. The victim is less than 16 years old.

Rutherford County Sheriff Chris Francis said the case began through the Forest City Police Department receiving the report of a missing juvenile. The case was later tracked down to the Ramada Inn.

“We built a case on him,” Francis said and Salinas was arrested later Tuesday.

He is being held in jail under a $102,500 bond.
