Aransas Pass Juvenile Suspected of Sexual Assault Turns Self In

Posted: Updated:
ARANSAS PASS (Kiii News) -

A 16-year old fugitive wanted for aggravated sexual assault of a child turned himself in to the Aransas Pass Police Department on Tuesday.

The warrant for the juvenile suspect's arrest was signed on May 2. He is charged with sexually assaulting a 12-year old girl.

"It's a tragic case, you know, and involving juveniles, and those records are highly restricted," Aransas Pass Police Chief Eric Blanchard said. "We can't release that type of detail at this time."

According to the complaint affidavit, the 16-year old suspect allegedly had sex with the 12-year old victim on three occasions. The victim's mother discovered that her daughter had been texting another friend, telling that friend that she had lost her virginity to the suspect.

The 12-year old victim was interviewed at the Children's Advocacy Center of the Coastal Bend.

"On any event where a child is sexually assaulted, even if the offender is a child or an adult, yes, absolutely we would get involved with the Children's Advocacy Center, and they would actually help us as far as the interview process of the victimized child," Blanchard said.

The suspect is being held at the San Patricio County Juvenile Detention Center. He's charged with a first-degree felony. Because both the victim and suspect in the case are juveniles, 3News will not be releasing their names.
