A Wichita Falls man is behind bars accused of sex crimes against a child. 

On September 13, 2016, Wichita Falls Police were called out to a home in reference to a sexual assault.

An adult relative told officers the victim in this offense would have been six or seven years old when the sexual assault occurred sometime between December 2006 and December 2007. 

An officer told the detective assigned to investigate that Sam Escalante, Jr., 35, had been "touching" the victim over a ten year period. 

The victim was taken to Patsy's House for a forensic interview. She said when she was six or seven years old Escalante touched her inappropriately. 

In addition to disclosing details about a sexual assault, the victim said Escalante engaged in sexual contact with her on more than one occasion. 

Detectives made contact with Escalante and other family members who corroborated some of the details given by the victim.

Escalante denied all allegations made against him. He was arrested on Saturday, July 8, 2017, and charged with Indecency with a Child and Aggravated Sexual Assault.

As of Monday afternoon, he was still in the Wichita County Jail on a combined bond of $75,000.
