BELLMEAD, Texas (KWTX) Carlos Turrubiartes, 33, was in the McLennan County Jail Tuesday charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child in connection with the sexual abuse of two young girls seven years ago.

Bellmead police arrested Turrubiartes Tuesday after an investigation that started on May 2 when the two girls, who are now 16 and 14, reported that they were touched inappropriately and on at least one occasion sexually assaulted by the uncle of a friend during visits to the friend’s house.

The girls were 9 and 7 at the time of the abuse, police said.

Bond had not been set for Turrubiartes late Tuesday morning.
