Doesn't Crystal Polanco look cheery in that mugshot?
Why, it's almost like she just got finished giving alcohol to a 13-year-old kid and then sexually assaulting him.
Crime Stoppers said Polanco and her husband Aaron were definitely down with the youngsters, and that's why police on the lookout for both:
"Aaron invited [the victim] to his business located near the 17400 block of West Little York where he was given alcohol by the Polancos," the agency said. "He was then sexually assaulted by both suspects. The victim was sexually assaulted by the Polancos over a four-year period at their business and house located near the 6400 block of Crakston. Aaron Polanco also took pictures of the underage victim and emailed them to the victim."
A memento, of sorts. In case the years of trauma weren't enough to give.
Aaron, Crime Stoppers says, also had a thing for young girls:
"A 16 year female victim was taken to the Polanco's house in September of 2009. She was sexually assaulted by Aaron Polanco numerous times," the agency says.
Aaron, 35, has been charged with four counts of sexual assault of a child, one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child and one count of promoting child pornography.
The smiling Crystal, 23, is charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
They both remain on the run; Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to their arrest. Call 713-222-8477 or go through their website.
