Police arrest man for sexual assault of child

BELL COUNTY, TX (KXXV) - An 81-year-old man is in the Bell County Jail for a 2012 case, in which he is accused of sexual assault of a juvenile.

Juanito Ortiz has been charged with sexual assault, and was arrested Thursday, July 3.

Bell County Sheriff’s Investigator with the Special Crimes Unit discovered this 2012 case while reviewing inactive cases.

A juvenile had reported being sexually assaulted, but investigators lost contact with the victim and the case was put in an inactive file, according to the Bell County Sheriff's Department.

The case was reopened and investigators interviewed the victim and witnesses. They also reviewed the evidence, and then presented a case to the Bell County District Attorney's Office.
