Texas deputy arrested on allegation of child sexual assault

An off-duty Bexar County Sheriff's Department deputy has been arrested on a felony charge involving sexual assault of a child, reports CBS San Antonio affiliate KENS-TV.

'The details of the case are, quite frankly, heartbreaking, disturbing, disgusting and infuriating all at the same time, ' Salazar said in a press conference.

The victim's mother took the child to a fire department to report the abuse this weekend after the child made a cry for help.

Investigators say the suspect blackmailed the mother by threatening to report her undocumented immigration status to federal officials.

Salazar said the assaults may have been going on for years, and that there could be other victims. Investigators quickly, stepped in and arrested Nunez around 3 a.m. Sunday. He said there could be more victims in Nunez's case.

"I don't know that he was purposely targeting the undocumented community", Salazar said. "Just like we're doing in this case, we're filling out paperwork with this witness in question to make sure that she's given protected status pending the outcome of this case", said Salazar.

Salazar also urged people who may be witness to a crime to come forward, even if they are an undocumented immigrant. "If you break the law, you are going to jail", Salazar said.

Nunez, who is a 10-year veteran of the sheriff's office, engaged in physical contact with the child's genital area "which caused pain", Salazar said, adding there was "at least some indication of minor injury".

In a nationwide survey conducted by the American Civil Liberties Union and National Immigrant Women's Advocacy Project, 70 percent of prosecutors said that sexual assault is now underreported and harder to investigate than before Trump took office. He has been put on administrative leave from the agency, of which the first 10 days are paid.

The arrest of the undocumented has come under scrutiny after a growing number of parents and their children are being separated at the border as part of the Trump administration's illegal immigration enforcement strategy.
