Police are looking for Juan Antonio Aranda, 37, who they say at least twice sexually abused a seven-year-old girl.
He's been charged with sexually assaulting the girl at her residence here in Houston, and then threatening the girl's mother if she reported the incident.
Later, Crime Stoppers says, he "pushed the victim into the bathroom and forced her to perform sexual acts on him."
He's described as being 5-foot-6 and 170 pounds. "He has black hair, brown eyes with a medium complexion," Crime Stoppers says, and his last known address was in Crosby.
Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information called in to 713-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org that leads to the filing of felony charges or arrest in the case.
