Carlos Cancina: Police Looking for Alleged, and Very Short, Child Rapist

DA investigators and Crime Stoppers are looking for Carlos Daniel Cancino, an 18-year-old wanted on charges of sexual assault of a child.

Officials say that in June "a twelve year old victim was in a residence with Cancino whom she calls 'Carlos.' The victim stated that Cancino jumped on her, began to take her clothes off, and forced physical relations."

Before the victim's family learned of the assault, Cancino moved to his mother's home in Austin. His mother, however, reported the incident to the victim's family, and they contacted police.

Cancino is on the run, but if you're looking for him, look thoroughly: He is described as being 4-11 and a mere 90 pounds.

Anyone with information about the identity of the fugitive is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
