BRYAN, Tx (KYLE) — After a four month long investigation police say a Bryan father now sits behind bars for sexually assaulting a child.
Police arrested 33-year-old Martin Espitia overnight Thursday.
His arrest comes after a 14-year-old girl told police she was sexually assaulted since she was 11. The victim says the assault first started out as touching but as she got older, they escalated.
Espitia is denying the accusations. He was given the opportunity to take a polygraph test but he refused.
He's currently in the Brazos County Jail. Bail is set at $50,000.
