A 25-year-old Abilene man has been arrested for the offense of sexual assault of a child.
Julian R. Solis remains in Taylor County Jail on $10,000 bond.
Last Friday, detectives in the Abilene Police Department’s Special Victim’s Unit investigated a sexual assault – involving a 16-year-old girl – that allegedly had occurred the previous day at a residence in the 1200 block of Beech Street.
Police determined the alleged teenage victim was walking in the vicinity of South 11th and Sayles Boulevard around 10 a.m. Thursday when Solis contacted her from a motor vehicle.
Solis reportedly offered her a ride, an APD news release said, and the teen accepted the offer. He then eventually drove her to his residence, where he and the victim had sexual contact. The investigation determined Solis knew the victim was under the age of 17.
