MIAMI (Dec. 26, 2015) — A Honduran man is behind bars, Thursday, after he was accused of molesting an 11-year-old girl aboard a Disney cruise ship.

The incident took place on board the Disney Magic, which set sail from Port Miami on Dec. 18 for a weekend cruise. While on the ship, the girl told her parents that a man, later identified as 31-year-old Juan Manuel Palma Ortega, fondled her three times.

Miami-Dade police detained Palma Ortega back at Port Miami, where he allegedly confessed to the crime. He was charged with three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of a minor and is being held without bond.  He’s also being held on an immigration hold, subject to possible deportation.

Ortega was ordered no bond in a Miami-Dade courtroom Thursday.

7News reached out to Disney Cruises and is awaiting a statement.
