A Moultrie man was accused Friday of sexually assaulting a 23-year-old man between Thursday night and early Friday morning.

Jorge Virueet, 52, of 220 Lakeshore Road, was charged with sodomy.

A Colquitt County sheriff’s deputy was called to a house on Lakeshore Road at 2:16 a.m. Friday about an assault.

The deputy reported that when he arrived, he found the victim crying and lying in the fetal position at a neighbor’s residence where the attack occurred.

The man said the neighbor invited him over for a drink. He was given free beer and cigarettes as he was promised, he said, but afterwards, Virueet, who was also at the neighbor’s house, allegedly sexually assaulted him.

Virueet was found in a house behind the neighbor’s house, and he was placed under arrest and taken to Colquitt County Jail. Colquitt

County EMS arrived and took the victim to Colquitt Regional Medical Center for treatment, but he was not admitted into the hospital.
