Waco Police arrest man for sexual assault of a child
WACO, TX (KXXV) -
A 23-year-old local man was arrested and charged with sexual assault for a relationship he was having with a girl in her mid-teens.
Keyshun O'Neal Russell was charged with sexual assault and sexual assault of a child by Waco PD for incidents that occurred in March and April. Russell was charged because the female victim is too young to legally give consent.
Russell also faces one count of sexual assault of a child filed by Hewitt Police. That charge involves the same victim, but the incident occurred in Hewitt.
The Waco cases were investigated after the parent of the victim became suspicious. Forensic interviews were conducted with the victim as part of the investigation.
Police say, it appears Russell lied to the victim about how old he was.
