A man is under arrest and facing charges for the sexual assault of a child. According to APD:
On Friday, August 22, 2014, at 12:31 a.m., APD patrol officers stopped Melvin Alexander Aguilar for a traffic violation. Aguilar did not have a photo ID and the identity he provided to the officer matched that of a person who was a suspect in Sexual Assault of a Child case from 2012. The case had been forwarded to a Travis County Grand Jury which later issued a six-count indictment.
Aguilar was then arrested for no driver’s license. Later, it was learned that he was the person who was wanted by police.

2 counts of Sexual Assault of a Child – 2nd degree felony
