Cordell William Dalrymple, 18, who was arrested in February in connection with separate incidents in which a Robinson woman was threatened at gunpoint and a 7-year-old boy was sexually assaulted, was named in a three-count indictment Wednesday charging aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Dalrymple was indicted on May 8 on one count of aggravated assault.

He remains in the McLennan County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling more than $200,000.

The aggravated assault charge stems from an incident early in the morning on Nov. 27, 2018.

The victim, a Robinson woman, told officers that Dalrymple came to her home, pulled out a handgun and pointed it at her forehead, telling her he would “‘take care’ of her infant child or significant other if they told someone about the encounter,” police said in a press release Wednesday.

The woman told officers that the threat was related to an assault on her “significant other” three days earlier in Waco, police said.

The child sexual assault charge stems from a complaint police received on Jan. 20 in which two separate “subjects alleged that Dalrymple had sexually assaulted their 7-year-old son,” during an overnight stay, police said.

After a forensic interview of the boy at the Advocacy Center for Crime Victims and Children, an arrest warrant was issued, police said.
