Police arrested a 25-year-old Fellsmere man Thursday for having sex with a 13-year-old girl, reports show.

Police say someone from the girl’s family called law enforcement Thursday after walking in on the two as they were having a sexual encounter, the affidavit said.

During the investigation, Reyes admitted his involvement with the girl and said the relationship has been going on since last summer, according to the Fellsmere Police Department.
