Illegal immigrant in Brownwood charged with fondling girl

An illegal immigrant living in Brownwood is in custody in the Brown County Jail for allegedly fondling a girl younger than 14, according to Brownwood police.

Felipe Lopez, 26, was charged early Tuesday with one count each of indecency with child by sexual contact, burglary of habitation with intent to commit a sexual offense, and evading arrest.

Bonds totaling $110,000 were set, but Lopez won’t be released because he is an illegal immigrant.

The alleged indecency incident happened Monday, police reported.

According to police, the girl’s mother confronted Lopez Tuesday at his residence. Lt. Tracy Delgado said police were called to a disturbance there because an argument ensued.

When officers arrived, Lopez ducked out the back door and evaded police for three hours before being caught several blocks away, Delgado said.
