Gabino Vargas-Perez was a junior at Central High School when a 14-year-old girl told police he raped her.
He posted $5,000 bond and then disappeared.
Prosecutors said Vargas-Perez, 20, is a legal U.S. resident, but his parents are in Guatemala.
The victim’s family says the damage has been done, and now they fear justice will never be served.
“I’m really frustrated, I’m really mad at the situation, at the law,” the teen’s aunt, remaining anonymous to protect her niece, said.
She tells KETV NewsWatch 7 that Vargas-Perez stalked the girl at school for several months before they started dating. She says her niece reported him to school administration on multiple occasions, although Omaha Public Schools says it has no record of these reports.
According to a police report, the victim says Vargas-Perez told her he was taking her home to meet his family, but after the introduction, he took her upstairs, took her clothes off and forced her to have sex after she told him “no.”
The incident happened in the fall of 2016, and was reported in December, police say.
“Her emotion, personal emotion, she’s doing really bad,” the girl’s aunt said.
The family who helped him bond out said he’s gone and they hope it’s for good.
“He’s not in the country anymore,” said a family member of Vargas-Perez, who asked to not be identified. “What I’ve heard, he’s not in the country.”
“Ever since that incident happened, nobody wanted anything to do with him,” the family member added.
After posting bond, Vargas-Perez never showed up for his next court appearance. Now there’s a warrant out for his arrest.
