LEXINGTON — A Lexington man accused of two counts of sexual assault had his bond in the two cases consolidated in Dawson County District Court.

Elbin Perez-Manchame, 27, is accused of allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old child and 15-year-old child on two separate occasions in 2018.

On Sept. 20 Dawson County District Court Judge James Doyle ordered Perez-Manchame’s bond in the two cases to be consolidated. Bond was set at ten percent of $50,000.00 with the conditions he cannot contact the alleged victims or leave the state.

According to court documents, on Oct. 28, 2018 Perez-Manchame had agreed to purchase alcohol and meet with a 14-year-old child in rural Dawson County. Perez-Manchame picked up the minor from their home and drove to a minimum maintenance road. The charges indicated sexual penetration without consent.

In a second case, on Oct. 31, 2018 a 15-year-old child told Lexington Police officers she had been sexually assaulted by Perez-Manchame, according to court documents.

During a Family Advocacy Network interview, the 15-year-old said four or five months ago they had received messages from Perez-Manchame. After initially ignoring the messages, they eventually responded and met with Perez-Manchame.

Perez-Manchame took the 15-year-old back to his residence where court documents allege sexual penetration without consent.

When contacted by Lexington Police, Perez-Manchame stated he knew the 14-year-old and 15-year-old through their parents, but denied messaging them or contacting them, according to court documents.

Perez-Manchame was booked into the Dawson County Jail on Nov. 5, 2018 for two counts of first degree sexual assault of a child, Class 1B felonies.

A pre-trial hearing has been set for Oct. 18, 2019 and a trial date is set for Nov. 12, 2019.
