San Benito man charged with sexual assault of a child

A San Benito man is charged with the sexual assault of a child. Jorge Alberto Herrera Martinez, 21, was arrested Tuesday morning when he turned himself in to San Benito police.

He is charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and three counts of indecency with a child.

Investigators say in July a female child, whose age is unknown, told a family member of the alleged assaults.

Police say they found sufficient probable cause to obtain several warrants for Martinez. Judge Benjamin Yudesis set bond at $700,000. Martinez is being held Cameron County Detention Center in Olmito.
