CAMP COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -
A man is behind bars accused of sexually assaulting a six-month-old child.
Camp County Sheriff's Office's chief investigator says Ignacio Saldana-Rivera sexually assaulted a six-month-old family member. Officials wouldn't say how the infant is related to Saldana.
On June 8, Saldana was arrested for assault family violence and interfering with an emergency phone call. Authorities say this stemmed from the infant's mother calling 911 to report the assault and Saldana allegedly assaulted the woman to keep her from reporting him.
After an investigation, the Camp County Sheriff's Office deemed the woman's claims to be true and charged Saldana with aggravated sexual assault of a child.
The Camp County Sheriff's Office says an investigation is underway into claims that Saldana may have sexually assaulted a second child. Authorities would not comment further on whether the second child is related to Saldana.
Saldana remains in the Camp County Jail on bonds totaling more than $100,000. Officials say Saldana can not bond out of jail because of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, hold.
