A Lubbock man was arrested in the early morning hours of Friday, August 27th after being accused of sexually abusing a girl who was younger than 14.

KAMC News reports that the victim was an elementary school student when the abuse began, and it continued for multiple years. The allegations of misconduct dated all the way back to 2014.

The suspect, 34-year-old Alejandro Campos, Jr. lived in a garage in Central Lubbock, and apparently would take the girl to the garage on occasion. It began with activities such as "playing horsey," which involved bouncing the girl on his lap, but over time, it got to a point where he was engaging in sexual behavior with the girl on a daily basis. An arrest warrant against Campos said that sometimes he would offer the girl toys or money in exchange for sexual behaviors.

Lubbock Police weren't aware of the situation until July of 2021 when the victim's mother reported it to the police. Apparently, the mother was also unaware of it until she reported it.

On August 18th, 2021, police confronted Campos. That's when he admitted to the allegations against him, saying that he did "all that they say I did."

Campos now faces 6 counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and 3 counts of indecency with a child.
