A 20-year-old College Station man was arrested Friday after authorities say he was having an ongoing sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl.
According to College Station police, a woman brought the girl to the police department on Jan. 2 to file a report that the child had been sexually assaulted. The girl spoke with police and said she had been in a sexual relationship with Jairo Areceo Balux-Guarchaj for several months.
The girl said in early 2018, when she was 12, Balux-Guarchaj approached her on social media and the two began talking. By October, the two began have sexual intercourse, which continued regularly through December. The girl also provided authorities with videos taken of the encounters, which she had saved on her phone. Authorities said the girl's mother told Balux-Guarchaj to stay away from the girl, and that he was aware how old the girl was.
Balux-Guarchaj is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child, a first-degree felony punishable by up to 99 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. Bond has been set at $40,000, though he is also being held at the Brazos County Jail on a U.S. immigration hold.
