Alberto Sanchez-Moreno | CPD

A 39-year-old Albany Park man is facing felony charges after a 13-year-old girl told investigators that he had sex with her in his car last autumn, according to court and police records.

The girl, who lives in the Irving Park neighborhood, told forensic investigators on Jan. 20 that Alberto Sanchez-Moreno picked her up at her home and drove her to a nearby area for sex between October and November 2019, arresting officers said in paperwork.

A fugitive apprehension unit arrested Sanchez-Moreno at his home on the 4700 block of North Spaulding a few days later.

Prosecutors also allege that Sanchez-Moreno solicited the girl to text photos of her private areas to his phone.

Sanchez-Moreno is charged with felony grooming and felony aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim between 13- and 17-years-old.

Judge Mary Marubio set bail at $30,000. Sanchez-Moreno went home to await trial by posting a $3,000 deposit bond, according to court records. He is due back in court on Feb. 14.
