Federal Agents Arrest Man with Warrants for Aggravated Sexual Assault
Federal agents arrested a 20 year-old male after he was accused of having sex with a 10 year-old child.
Francisco Leija was arrested early Monday morning at the Gateway International bridge on warrants issued by Brownsville police for aggravated sexual assault of a child and continuous sexual abuse of a child. Police say the victim notified them of the abuse earlier this year and the assault happening sometime in early 2010. Leija fled to Mexico when he learned of the warrants and he was accessed a $200,000 dollar bond.
