Miami police have detained Colombia-born, Miami-based DJ and producer Erick Morillo and charged him with sexual battery for an alleged incident in December of 2019.
According to WLPG Local 10 News, Morillo’s accuser, a fellow DJ, performed alongside him at a private party on Star Island. Afterwards, he invited her and another woman to accompany him for drinks at his home in the nearby La Gorce neighborhood.
The alleged victim accused Morillo of making “several advances towards her, some sexual in nature, but she refused all of his attempts,” according to the arrest report. She said she was intoxicated and found a room in the house to sleep in by herself, and woke up naked to find him standing next to the bed, also naked.
On Wednesday, August 6th, rape kit results tested positive for Morillo’s DNA. He turned himself in with an attorney, according to the police report.
Erick Morillo has denied the sexual battery allegations.
