    • According to an arrest report, the two female victims – a 9-year-old and 10-year-old – claim Beltres forced them to have sex with him.

    A Miami-Dade pastor is behind bars after police say he allegedly assaulted two young girls earlier this year inside his home.

    Officers charged 54-year-old Yunior Beltres with two counts of sexual battery on a minor after he turned himself in Thursday. Beltres is being held on no bond.

    According to an arrest report, the two female victims – a 9-year-old and 10-year-old – claim Beltres forced them to have sex with him and watch as he allegedly assaulted the other victim, adding he would grab their private parts with his hands and mouth.

    Beltres, a pastor at Iglesia Columnas de Fuego in Allapattah, met with investigators on Thursday along with his attorney, but refused to answer questions and was taken to jail.

    A judge in bond court Friday ordered Beltres to stay away from the victims. He remains in jail under no bond.
