A four-time deportee in Parker County, Texas, is accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl in her home.
The Parker County Sheriff says 35-year-old Israel Andrade broke into the home early Saturday morning and sexually assaulted the girl while she was asleep. The victim awoke to the stranger groping her inside her house.
He was arrested in Springtown, after he allegedly broke into the home through a bedroom window.
The victim says the man motioned for her to follow him into the bedroom where he entered the house, but she went screaming to her parents, while the suspect escaped out the window.
Investigators were able to track down Andrade at a relative’s house about a mile away, where he's been staying for about 30 days after returning from Mexico.
Investigators also found out that Andrade been deported from the United States four times since 2003.
Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler wrote a statement in part saying: "Our federal government needs to step forward and aid us in enforcing the laws on our southern border. This type of injustice cannot be allowed to pass by for a sixth time."
Investigators found a cell phone that belonged to the victim and some of the 9-year-old girl’s clothes at the home where Andrade was staying.
He was booked into the Parker County Jail and faces charges for burglarizing a home with the intent to commit another felony.
