NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 37-year-old man Thursday in connection to allegations that he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old boy back in 2011.

Michael Anthony Anderson, of Center, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County jail on two first-degree felony aggravated sexual assault of a child charges. No bail amounts have been set at this time.

According to the arrest affidavit, the teen made an outcry to the Houston Police Department on Dec. 16, 2015. Houston PD completed a report and child advocacy center interviews were conducted with the alleged victim.

The HPD report was sent to the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office investigator that obtained the arrest warrant, and he watched a video of the child advocacy center interview with the boy.

During the interview, the boy said that he was in the sixth grade when the alleged incidents occurred.  

The alleged victim said that, at first, Anderson would make him lay down in bed with him and not let him get up, the affidavit stated. In the child advocacy center interview, the boy said that it started with him being fully clothed and it progressed to Anderson making him lie in the bed with him naked, the affidavit stated.

According to the affidavit, the boy said Anderson started with touching him inappropriately. Eventually Anderson allegedly progressed to sexually assaulting the boy.

When he was asked why he didn’t tell his mother what Anderson had done to him, the alleged victim said that his mom thought Anderson was “a good guy” and he didn’t think she would believe him, the affidavit stated.

“He didn’t want to be labeled a liar,” the affidavit stated.
