Reynaldo Cardenas has been charged with one count of injury to a child by sexual contact. He's accused of meeting up with the 16 year old girl and taking her to a building on the premises of a local country club where he's employed.

"He's a security guard so he has access to many locations I would imagine in the area, and this is where he took the minor." said Eddie Garcia of the Brownsville Police Dept.

The alleged incident happened towards the end of October, a report was filed earlier this week and Cardenas was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

"During the investigation the outcry was made by the family, she was interviewed and he also was interviewed as well, and as a result the arrest was made." added Garcia.

The 33 year old has been given a $100-thousand dollar bond.

News Center 23 attempted to speak with management from the country club who say they won't comment just yet until they have all the information surrounding Cardenas' arrest.
