NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 19-year-old man for aggravated sexual assault for allegedly sexually assaulting a girl under the age of six and giving him or her a sexually transmitted disease.

Jose Ignacio Lopez, of Nacogdoches, is still being held at the Nacogdoches County Jail on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child. No bail has been set at this time.

According to a press release from the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office, the investigation started on Oct. 13 when the mother of the victim noticed something wrong with her daughter. The little girl was taken to Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital for treatment.

The NCSO was notified. Investigator's with the sheriff's office set up a forensic exam and interview for the girl at Harold's House. As result, the investigators got a probable cause warrant for Lopez and arrested him at his work on Thursday.

Nacogdoches County Sheriff Jason Bridges said the child has contracted a sexually transmitted disease as a result of the sexual assault and is receiving medical attention for it. The NCSO is having a blood test conducted on Lopez.

Bridges said, depending on the results of that test, an additional endangering a child charge could be filed because of the sexually transmitted disease.
