Three Arrested For Sexual Assault of a Child From Amarillo
Three Lubbock men have been arrested and charged with the sexual assault of a juvenile from Amarillo.
On Friday, July 19th, Lubbock Police received a call from a teenage girl from Amarillo needing help at the McDonald’s location at 50th and Quaker around 9:30 p.m.
The teenager said she was a runaway from Amarillo and had just escaped from a residence, where she claimed to have been held against her will for around six weeks and sexually assaulted.
LPD SWAT was called to the house at 4403 44th Street the next day, where officers were informed by the girl that the occupants may be armed and could barricade themselves inside the house.
Detectives originally believed that she was either kidnapped by an adult male in Amarillo or she was brought to Lubbock willingly, and then held inside the house against her will.
Police now believe the teen was a victim of multiple sexual assaults, but they do not believe that the incident was a kidnapping.
Information in the arrest warrant states that it is believed that the girl was forced to have sex with other men for money at area hotels.
The investigation continues, but three arrests for sexual assault were made last Friday in the case.
Those arrested are 23-year-old Eduardo Hernandez, 20-year-old Justin Blake Hernandez, and 41-year-old Angel Ramos.
Eduardo Hernandez is being held in the Lubbock County Jail on a number of charges, including sexual assault of a child and burglary of a habitation.
Justin Blake Hernandez is held in the Lubbock County Jail, and he faces charges of sexual assault of a child, evading arrest, and parole violation.
Angel Ramos is also being held in the Lubbock County Jail on charges of sexual assault of a child and possession of dangerous drugs.
