Police: Smyrna Girl, 7, Raped

She said she was told not to tell anyone about the alleged sexual abuse.

A Smyrna man has been arrested in connection with the rape of a 7-year-old girl.

Between Oct. 1 and March 13, investigators with the Smyrna Police Department said Jose Alberto Dealmonte raped the girl "more than one time inside her residence."

During one incident, the girl told authorities that she tried to get away, but Dealmonte allegedly "grabbed her by the leg and pulled her back to him," according to a Cobb County criminal warrant.

The girl said that Dealmonte told her not to tell anyone about the alleged sexual abuse. "Accused called it their 'secret,' " an officer wrote in the warrant.

Dealmonte was arrested Thursday night on charges that include rape, child molestation and cruelty to children in the first degree, according to online jail records, which list his birth year (1988), but not the month and the date.

He is in the Smyrna City Jail without bond. He has a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold on his release.

How is it "racist" to tell the TRUTH? Illegals (of any color or national origin, including "white") are CRIMINALS. Ms. Martinez

I agree with Stephen m & others! Anger directed at CRIMINALS is not racist & no one mentioned "all Mexicans". Get the facts straight! And Peyton John, the police had enough evidence to arrest this pos, your comment regarding similar crimes being committed by white men was ludicrous.

...if I wanted to be racist I would've used the word "spick" or "wet back." So do you want to reconsider your choice of verbage visa vi "redneck?" Or are you a racialist where white people are concerned?

If it's guilty, do the world a favor and simply execute it! Mail the charred remains and a bill for our rendered "services" to its' country of origin. If it has illegal family here, ship them all back too. Seize all their assets and have them sold at auction or donated to a charitable institution. If for some reason it's not in-fact guilty... it and its' illegal family should STILL be shipped back (in a crowded cattle crate, preferably). Merely deporting it means that it will return home, may or may not face any sort of repercussions, rape more children, and then return here illegally whenever it desires. There's nothing stopping it.
