CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The U.S. Marshals' Fugitive Task Force arrested a man wanted on charges of sexual assault of a child, among other crimes, in Bee county.

Steve Salazar, a Corpus Christi man, was wanted for sexual assault of a child, bond violations for robbery, and terroristic threats.

While out on bond after being arrested in connection with robberies in February, Salazar was arrested again in March and charged with sexual assault of a child.

On April 15, the Gulf Coast Violent Offender Fugitive Task Force arrested Salazar without incident at the 11000 block of Highway 181, in Bee County. He was at a family member’s home.

With the assistance of Bee County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety, Salazar was transported to Bee County Jail. He was booked on pending warrants without bond.
