  • He was charged with sexual battery
  • Two other young men were also charged in connection with the Amber Alert case

A Florida man has been arrested for having sex with an 11-year-old middle school girl who was reported missing Monday.

Luis Encarnacion, 22, was arrested Tuesday after the teen was found in his home on Pasadena Drive, Tampa. Encarnacion is facing charges including concealing the location of a minor, unlawful use of a two-way communication device, lewd and lascivious battery and sexual battery, WFLA-TV reported.

Encarnacion admitted to the offenses when he was questioned by detectives at the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, the outlet reported.

Montana Breseman, a student of River Ridge Middle School, was wearing a gray hoodie that reads "My body, My Sweat, Your Tears," when she disappeared from her school campus. An Amber Alert was issued for the girl. Authorities said the juvenile was 5 foot 6 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds with red hair and brown eyes. She was also reportedly wearing heavy mascara and fake eyelashes at the time.

On Monday, the teen was spotted outside a 7-11 store in Pasco County. She was seen getting into a dark-colored 4-door Hyundai sedan with a male "in his late teens to early 20s," the Pasco County Sheriff's office had said in a tweet.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said the department received a tip that the girl had met two other men at a nearby convenience store before she went missing. Police charged Reginald Clark, 19, and a 17-year-old unidentified boy with "interference of child custody" in connection with the case.

Nocco said the 11-year-old girl met Encarnacion on social media and he was believed to be her boyfriend. "In her mind, she thought Luis was her boyfriend. We all know that's not real. That's not really that an 11-year-old has a 22-year-old boyfriend," the sheriff added, WFLA-TV reported. "What is real is that Luis, this 22-year-old, acted like a predator on this little child."

Breseman is now under the care of social services.
