WINCHESTER — Officers have confiscated clothing from a local man charged with sexually assaulting a boy.

According to a search warrant filed Friday in Winchester Circuit Court, the mother of the 10-year-old boy reported the assault after finding her son locked in a bathroom with the suspect.

Gadvin Acencio-Godoy, 36, of the 400 block of Imperial Street was arrested Wednesday night on charges of indecent liberties with a child and aggravated sexual battery.

According to a criminal complaint filed in the case, city officers were called Wednesday to Beechcroft Road after a report of a sexual assault involving a juvenile boy.

The search warrant states that the mother of the boy returned home with her husband, expecting to find her son and a caretaker — but did not find anyone in the living room.

She began walking toward the hallway and heard voices in the bathroom. When she tried to open the door, it was locked, the warrant states.

The mother called her son’s name several times, and eventually heard the door unlock.

When she opened the door, she found her son in the bathroom with Acencio-Godoy. She said her son looked “shocked” and was “speechless,” according to the warrant.

Acencio-Godoy told her the child “wanted my cellphone” as he was leaving the bathroom, the warrant states.

The mother then took the boy into her bedroom to ask what had happened, stating that he was initially quiet and then began crying.

The child told his mother that Acencio-Godoy had sexually abused him. She then called police.

When the officers arrived, Acencio-Godoy and the boy were still in the home.

The items confiscated from Acencio-Godoy include a pair of pants and belt, a gray T-shirt and a pair of underwear.

Acencio-Godoy is being held without bond in the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center.

He is expected to appear on the charges at 3 p.m. May 8 in Winchester General District Court.
