ALICE - A man wanted for the alleged sexual assault of a child in Alice was located and arrested at a relative's home this morning.
A warrant for the arrest of 31-year-old Juan Francisco Ortiz was issued last week.
Police say he was found at a family member's home on County Road 324 in the town of Alfred, just a few miles north of Alice.
According to court documents a teenage girl came forward to a family member back in December with allegations that she had sex with Ortiz when he came by the home two months before.
The investigator in the case noted that Ortiz had a photo of the girl stored on his cell phone and told a coworker that he was in a sexual relationship with her.
Ortiz is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.
