Two men held in rape of 10-year-old girl in Lutz home

LUTZ — Two men were arrested Wednesday and face sexual battery charges after they admitted having sex with a 10-year-old girl, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

Daniel Cardido Diaz, 20, of 14711 E Idell St., and Nicolas Juan Carrion, 22, 5917 N 15th St., were arrested on counts of sexual battery on a victim younger than 12 and were held without bail.

Deputies say the men knew the girl from the neighborhood and both had sex with her in a Lutz home on Sept. 22. Both men admitted in separate interviews to being present as the other had sex with the child, an arrest report says.

State records show both had previously been arrested on property crime charges.

In 2007, Tampa police arrested Diaz on a felony burglary and misdemeanor criminal mischief charges, say Florida Department of Law Enforcement records. The records do not show the disposition of that case.

In 2008, Carrion was arrested by Tampa police on a felony burglary charge and a misdemeanor petty theft charge. Records show he was convicted of a reduced charge of loitering, a misdemeanor, and the petty theft charge was dropped.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.
