NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office have arrested a man accused of sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 8.

Jairo Alejandro, 27, is charged with first-degree sexual assault of a child and Class A failure to identify.

According to Sheriff Jason Bridges, his office responded to a call of a child who had been sexually assaulted Saturday morning. Deputies set up an investigation and forensic interview and SANE exam at Harold's House for the victim.

During the investigation, deputies went to Alejandro's home to interview him but he was unresponsive. Deputies determined Alejandro had attempted to harm himself, so they called EMS and he was taken to a Nacogdoches hospital and later released.

On Saturday evening, deputies obtained a warrant for Alejandro's arrest and found him trying to hide from them on Lanana Street.

Bridges said Alejandro confessed to the crime, as well as to another sexual assault from several months ago.

Alejandro's collective bail is $107,500. Bridges said more charges are pending.
