NAMPA, Idaho — The Nampa Police Department is concerned there could be more victims, in sexual assault allegations against Jose Sanchez Vazquez, the owner of Garnacha Que Appacha.

Vazquez is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old between August and December of 2023.

Earlier this month, Boise Police arrested Vazquez on two felony charges, one charge of lewd conduct with a child under 16, and another charge of child sexual battery.

Now, Vazquez is facing additional charges. Two counts of statutory rape, associated with the same juvenile victim.

This, as Boise Police Investigators say Vazquez admitted to the alleged sexual relationship, within multiple Treasure Valley locations, including Nampa.

Court documents accuse Sanchez Vazquez of having sex with the 15-year-old girl over several months in 2023 at multiple locations between Ada and Canyon counties at his restaurant, near her Nampa apartment, and often in his truck.

According to court documents the victim was released from her job in February.

The two exchanged texts throughout the month.

Court documents show the teenage victim asked Sanchez Vazquez for her check "due to needing assistance for their daughter.

Documents show Vazquez responded telling the victim she couldn't get her check since she no longer worked at the restaurant, but then told her he would put her on the payroll for six months.

Court documents show the victim was paid through March 26th receiving four pay stubs even though she no longer worked at the restaurant.

On March 5th the victim reportedly sought help at the Nampa Family Justice Center.

The Nampa Police Department, Canyon County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, Boise Police Department and the Ada County Sheriff's Office teamed up to present the new charges, as Vazquez was preparing to post his initial $200,000 bond.

Now, Nampa Police are concerned there may be additional victims that have not reported encounters with Vazquez.

Nampa Police are urging parents who are concerned your child may have been in contact with him, to call them at 208-465-2257, option 1.

If you choose to report, you can remain anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers at 208-343-COPS or
