Metro police have issued arrest warrants charging child rape and aggravated robbery against a 26-year-old man in connection to Sunday night's violent attack on an 11-year-old girl and her parents in their home in the Overlook Apartments on Bell Road in Antioch.
Detectives said the child's mother had just gotten home from the store around 7:15 p.m. when she was approached by a stranger who was subsequently identified as Olbin Euceda.
Euceda pulled a pistol and ordered the mother back into the apartment where he and an accomplice robbed the family of electronics and other items.
Detectives were told that Euceda forced the 11-year-old into a bedroom where she was sexually assaulted.
"It's sickening. It's something this community should be sickened by. All of us need to do everything that we can to bring him into custody," Metro police spokesperson Don Aaron said.
Euceda has also now been identified as one of the two men who committed a home invasion robbery Saturday evening at MapleCreek apartments on Glenrose Avenue.
In that case, the suspects forced their way into an apartment at gunpoint and forced the family to surrender their cash and gold jewelry.
Aaron said Euceda is also connected to a Thursday home invasion at the Hickory Trace Apartments on Hickory Hollow Place where two adults were sexually assaulted.
"He is a very violent individual. He is a person that needs to be taken off the streets," Aaron said, adding, "Spanish speaking officers have been going into the apartment complexes showing his picture talking to people about them," Aaron said.
Euceda is considered to be armed and very dangerous.
He is believed to be traveling with his cousin, 25-year-old Benson Olman Euceda.
Police said the pair is known to frequent the Murfreesboro Pike/Thompson Lane area of south Nashville.
As of Monday night, Benson Euceda was not wanted on any charges connected to the home invasions but police said he likely has significant knowledge of the crimes.
Jasmine Gilchrist lives in the Murfreesboro Pike/Thompson Lane area.
She told Nashville's News 2, "I have a son so it does scare me. I'm nervous because he could be coming from any place at any time."
Steven Gilliam is a father of four children.
"It's kind of scary. I just live right up the street," he said. "I think he should be put in prison for the rest of his life."
Gilliam continued, "Anyone who touches children should be put away for the rest of their lives."
Authorities said Olbin Euceda had recently been living at the Clairmont apartments on Patricia Drive.
Anyone seeing and/or knowing the whereabouts of either men is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
Citizens can also send an electronic tip to Crime Stoppers by texting the word "CASH" along with their message to 274637 (CRIMES).
