JACKSONVILLE DOCTOR ARRESTED ON CHARGE OF SEXUAL BATTERY OF 15-YEAR-OLD BOY
A Jacksonville doctor is facing a sexual battery charge after he was discovered in bed with a 15-year-old boy early this morning in DeBary. The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office is asking for anyone who may have information about any similar incidents to contact detectives.
Deputies responded around 1:45 a.m. Thursday to a home in DeBary after a witness found 30-year-old Alexander Ralys (DOB 9/14/1987) in the 15-year-old victim’s bed. The witness reported that Ralys was on top of the victim and neither was clothed from the waist down. The victim told detectives Ralys sexually battered him.
The witness removed Ralys from the house immediately after he walked in on the incident, and Ralys was still outside the home when deputies arrived.
Ralys is listed as a first-year resident in family medicine at Orange Park Medical Center in Orange Park, near Jacksonville.
Ralys is charged with sexual battery on a victim over the age of 12/under the age of 18. He was transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail to be held without bond. Additional charges are possible pending further investigation. While there are no reports of any additional potential victims at this time, anyone with additional information is asked to contact the VCSO Child Exploitation Unit at 386-323-3574.
