SAN ANGELO, Texas — A 17-year-old Abilene man was arrested on a charge of indecency with a child Sunday.
According to the Abilene Police Department, on Sunday, the department's Cyber Crimes Unit was called out to the 1200 block of Peach Street to investigate a possible online solicitation of a minor allegation.
During the course of the investigation, it was revealed that the suspect, Alex Tucker, a 17-year-old white male, allegedly had sexual contact with a young child.
Tucker was arrested for indecency with a child, a second-degree felony offense. APD said the investigation is still ongoing in regards to other child exploitation offenses that may have been committed by Tucker.
The Cyber Crimes unit wants to remind parents that child sexual predators are still using common social media apps to target your children. Parents need to monitor children’s use of these applications.
