Extra security is patrolling a camp at Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts in wake of an alleged sexual assault that was reported on Thursday.
Mario Larrondo, 50, of Tampa, Florida was arrested Thursday for allegedly sexually assaulting the victim at MB Sports Camp. He was charged with aggravated rape and was held on $50,000 bail.
Court documents show the alleged victim is a counselor, and Larrondo is a night patroller. Larrondo had been working for the camp for five years, according to MB Sports Camp manager Harriet Wingrove.

"Both of these adult staff members are familiar with each other (as you know)," MB Sports Camp said in a statement. "The Norfolk County District Attorney is investigating and we are supportive and cooperating 100 percent."
Investigators say the alleged crime happened overnight Wednesday and the suspect was arrested early Thursday by Milton police. Court documents reveal that Larrondo and the victim, a Curry College student, were doing their nightly rounds Wednesday when they stopped for a quick workout.
In the police report, the counselor stated that the suspect began stretching and massaging her hips despite her pleads for it to stop. He then pulled off her shorts and assaulted her, according to the report.
"It's very surprising," Wingrove said. "We are trying to stay as non-opinionated as possible. We're leaving that job up to the police."
Wingrove said the camp has been speaking with parents and answering their questions regarding the alleged crime. She said camp counselors and coaches are not addressing what happened with the children and are leaving that up to their parents.
According to Norfolk officials, Larrondo is not in the country legally. Two Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents appeared at the suspect’s arraignment on Thursday and put an immigration detainer on him.
"We have all documentation for him to be able to work in the United States," Wingrove said.
The alleged victim asked to return to work Friday, according to MB Sports Camp officials.
"We've had contact with the alleged victim," Wingrove said. "She has asked to return to work. We are fully supportive of that."
The camp rents space at the college for six weeks and is for various sports for children. Both day and overnight camps are offered.
"We would like to express our sympathy to those that are involved in the situation and we hope that it is resolved in an expedient manner," camp management said in a statement.
