Police arrest two accused of sexually assaulting girls

WACO, TX (KXXV) - Waco police have arrested two men and are looking for at least three more accused of sexually assaulting young girls that could be connected to a gang initiation.

Eric Eusevio Cortez and Austin Louis Gonzalez have both been charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child. They are being held in lieu of $100,000 total for the charges.

Officers began their investigation back on March 28 after they were called to Providence Health Center, where a woman had taken her daughter, who was younger than 14, to the hospital after she had been sexually assaulted.

The investigation led them to Cortez, but while investigating, they discovered that another man, Gonzalez, had been in the company of two runaways under the age of 14.

Police say there appears to be more victims. They have Cortez and Gonzalez in custody, but they are looking for two or three more men. Police anticipate finding more victims and making more arrests.
