An unlicensed vendor peddling food in Las Vegas apartment complexes has been accused of sexually assaulting a girl, Metro Police said.

Detectives arrested Everardo Mata-Zuniga, 53, on Friday on two counts of sexual assault of a victim under 14 years of age. He was being held at the Clark County Detention Center without bail, according to jail records.

Police allege Mata-Zuniga showed the girl pornographic movies before assaulting her twice between 2010 and 2013.

For several years, Mata-Zuniga sold food from a bicycle cart at apartment complexes and parks near Pennwood Avenue and Arville Street, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Metro’s Sexual Assault Section at 702-828-3421. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or online at crimestoppersofnv.com.
