An American man is now in police custody in the United States after allegedly sexually assaulting a minor at a resort in Jamaica.

The US attorney’s office for the northern district of California in a statement said a federal grand jury indicted Douglas Peacock for traveling to a foreign country and engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.

Peacock was detained in the Southern District of Florida yesterday morning by the Honorable Barry L. Garber after being arrested on the charge in Miami on November 10, 2017.

Peacock, 43, of Foster City, allegedly traveled from the United States to Jamaica on or about June 19, 2017, and thereafter engaged in illicit sexual conduct with a minor who was, at the time, under 12 years of age. Specifically, Peacock, while in the pool of a family-friendly resort in Jamaica, molested a six-year-old US citizen minor victim.

Peacock is charged with one count of engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places.

If convicted,Peacock faces a maximum statutory sentence of 30 years.
