SAN ANGELO, TX – A man being held on an ICE hold in Tom Green County has been indicted for sexual assault of a child.
According to court documents, on Feb. 23, officers with the San Angelo Police Department were dispatched to a call regarding a possible sexual assault of a child.
When they arrived they spoke with a witness who told officers that she had observed phone conversations between someone the witness knew was under 17 and a grown man.
The witness told police that in the messages, they saw texts that described sexual activity between the child and 37-year-old Carlos Ayala. In the messages the witness saw a number of other things including child pornography that was sent to Ayala and porn that was sent back to the child.
