NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 36-year-old man who was arrested on two child sex-related charges back in March on an additional indecency with a child charge Monday.

The new charge stems from allegations that he molested an underage girl multiple times over the course of one to two years and then threatened to kill her when found out she had told her mother what he had done.

Bruno Juan Rodriguez, of Nacogdoches, was arrested and charged with second-degree felony indecency with a child charge. His bail amount has been set at $150,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, the girl talked to an NCSO investigator on Dec. 15, 2015. She said that Rodriguez would come to their house and molest her by touching her private parts, the affidavit stated.

The girl also said that the molestation occurred multiple times over the course of one to two years, the affidavit stated.

When Rodriguez found out that the girl had told her mother what had happened, Rodriguez allegedly threatened to kill her. One day, Rodriguez found the girl hiding from him in a closet, and he shoved a closed retractable knife into her stomach, making her think that he had stabbed her, the affidavit stated.

According to the affidavit, the abuse continued until the girl’s family moved.

Back in March of 2015, Rodriguez was arrested and charged with first-degree felony aggravated sexual assault of a child and second-degree felony indecency with a child.
According to the arrest affidavit for the second charge, a Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office investigator spoke to a deputy about a call about a sexual assault involving a 13-year-old girl. The investigator learned that over the course of an interview the girl did at Harold's House, she said that Rodriguez had put his hands inside her clothes and touched her inappropriately.

The SANE exam revealed that the girl had injuries that were consistent with molestation, the affidavit stated.

According to the arrest affidavit for the third charge, NCSO deputies responded to a disturbance call at a residence in the county Sunday. Dispatch told them that a 14-year-old girl had called and said that Rodriguez had raped her and had tried to sexually assault her sister, according to the affidavit.

Then the girl disconnected from the 911 call, saying that Rodriguez was in the living room of the home trying to rape her sister.

When the deputies arrived on the scene, they were able to located and detain Rodriguez. After the deputies interviewed those involved and reviewed the evidence, they determined that one of the girls had been sexually assaulted by Rodriguez, the affidavit stated.
