Leander PD: Instagram used in sex assault

LEANDER (KXAN) -- Police in Leander have charged 18-year-old David Arredondo with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl he met on Instagram. According to court documents, the girl invited Arredondo to her home to watch movies and instructed him to park his car down the street. However, she reported to police Arredondo started to have sex with her against her will.

A struggle ensued between Arredondo and the girl's father after he walked in to find his daughter being assaulted, according to police.

Although Arredondo was able to get away, detectives said he would later return while they were still on the scene.

"I do not know what he was thinking, but he came back to recover his vehicle," said Sergeant Anthony Mayberry. "The detective spoke to him and he admitted to being in the house. At that point he asked to have a lawyer present."

Arredondo's phone was seized as evidence and the arrest warrant said he lied about his age to the victim, saying he was 16.
