HOUSOTN, Texas — In July 2020, a deputy was dispatched to meet with the mother of a 13 year old girl who provided evidence and information of a 19 year old man who solicited her daughter online for sex.
Police say the man also traveled to their apartment in the 16300 block of Lyons School Road and “‘engaged in sexual contact” with her daughter.
Investigators determined the suspect to be John Lopez, 19 at the time of the crimes.
Investigators forensically analyzed the victim’s phone and obtained data from a search warrant to a social network to determine the suspect knew the victim was 13, solicited her for sexual activity, and then traveled from his home in the Humble area to meet and engage in sexual contact with the 13 year old victim.
A warrant for his arrest was obtained and executed.
John Lopez was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail, charged with Online Solicitation of a Minor and Indecency with a Child. His bond was set at $20,000.00 out of the 248th District Court.
