Rolando Salas Fernandez, San Antonio, Texas man arrested on sexual assault charges after allegedly having clandestine sexual liaison with 14 year old stepdaughter who he impregnated.
A San Antonio, Texas man who impregnated his 14-year-old stepdaughter has been arrested after allegedly ‘threatened to kill’ her entire family if she told anyone, cops say.
Rolando Salas Fernandez, 30, is suspected of sexually assaulting the teen for roughly half a year before being taken into custody this week according to an arrest affidavit.
The victim’s mother found out about the alleged abuse on Tuesday and reported Fernandez to police.
The woman found messages on Fernandez’s cell phone that were ‘sexual in nature’ that led her to believe they were engaging ‘in sexual acts,’ mysanantonio reported.
The teen told authorities that she’d been getting abused since December — with the last alleged incident happening on June 16. She said that Fernandez ‘had threatened to kill her family if the police found out.’
Upon finding out about the abuse, the 14 year old victim mother took her daughter to hospital where it was discovered the girl was six months pregnant KSAT reported.
Not immediately clear is how Gomez was allowed to live with the youth, as the man is currently the subject of a Child Protective Services investigation and not allowed to have contact with the 14 year old girl.
It remained unclear how Gomez became the focus of the child investigation and when it was initiated.
The stepfather has been charged with sexual assault of a child, with his bail being set at $75,000.
