Police said a 26-year-old man had group sex with underage girls at his Hixson apartment on Plaza Hills Lane.

Diego Eloim Munguia is charged with four counts of statutory rape.

The investigation began when in June of last year the mother of a 17-year-old girl told police that her daughter had been having sex with Munguia since the previous year. She said she found nude photos of the daughter and Munguia on her daughter's cell phone.

She said the daughter stated that Munguia would have her bring her 17-year-old friends from school over for group sex. Another girl showed an officer showing the daughter of the woman who contacted police having sex with Munguia in a room with a free-standing, dark-colored, wooden, oval-shaped mirror in the background.

Various topless photos of the first girl were found on the phone as she embraced Munguia as well as other nude photos of the first girl, other unknown nude girls, unknown male and female having sex and photos of a penis.

The daughter of the woman who contacted police admitted performing sex acts on Munguia and said she had stayed with him the prior two weeks. 

A couple living next to Munguia's apartment identified the mirror and the setting in the sex video as being his unit. They said they had seen him and the girl having sex on the living room floor.

Munguia was arrested last July on charges of coercion of a witness and tampering with evidence.

He was picked up on the statutory rape counts last Wednesday. He was living on Mack Drive in Cleveland, Tn.
