HARLINGEN – A San Benito man was arrested by the Harlingen Police Department for allegedly sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl.

Pablo Perez III, 32, was arrested by Harlingen police officers and US Marshals on Tuesday, March 12, for allegations that he had sexual contact with the victim. The allegations stem from a December 5 incident in which Harlingen police responded to the 800 block of North 13th Street in Harlingen in reference to a reported sexual assault.

According to a police report, officers met with an investigator for Child Protective Services who informed them that the 10-year-old girl made an outcry to a Texas Tropical Center employee.

A warrant was issued for Perez’ arrest following an investigation. It was also discovered that Perez had municipal court warrants for approximately $3,398.30. Perez was charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child, a first degree felony, and received a $250,000 bond.
