The Bowling Green Police Division is no longer attempting to identify the two females described in the July 3 press release. They have been identified and have spoken with investigators.

The two females are not suspects in any crime related to the current investigation.

The Bowling Green Police Division would like to thank all law enforcement personnel, the news media and all concerned citizens in attempting to identify these individuals.

Investigators are continuing to follow up on tips received regarding the whereabouts of the three male suspects involved an alleged kidnapping and sexual assault incident that occurred in Bowling Green. The alleged female victims are 13 and 14 years of age.

One suspect identified as Simon Juan, DOB 11/5/1993, Guatemala, was arrested for unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and transported to the Wood County Justice Center. Three other suspects are also alleged to be involved in the incident. At this time, detectives have identified one suspect as David Ramos Contreras, DOB 12/31/1990, Mexico. The two other suspects identified themselves as Juan Garcia Rios Adiel and Arnulfo Ramos. Adiel possessed a US Permanent Resident ID card out of Fellsmere, Florida, with a listed date of birth as 9/13/98; however, the card was later verified to be fraudulent.

Nationwide arrest warrants have been issued for Contreras, Adiel, and Ramos on two counts of kidnapping and rape.
