WILLIS- A Pct. 1 Deputy Constable stopped a sexual assault in progress on Tuesday after he discovered it unexpectedly while patrolling an area frequently used as an illegal dumpsite.
Sgt. W. Mack, Pct. 1 Environmental officer, was driving in the 11000 Tanyard Road around 3:20 p.m. when he noticed a green four-door passenger car backed into a wooded area about 100 feet from the road.
The sergeant stopped and approached the car on foot, where he saw a Hispanic male kneeling down in the open front passenger door. He then noticed a Hispanic female, who appeared to be unconscious, lying in the reclined front seat.
The man was trying to pull down the woman’s sweat pants and her chest area was exposed. The suspect had not noticed Mack’s approach. Mack could see the woman was unresponsive and the suspect was having difficulty trying to remove her pants.
Sgt. Mack announced himself and immediately detained the suspect away from the victim. Mack believed 46-year-old Daniel Alfaro of Willis was trying to sexually assault the unconscious woman.
After detaining Alfaro away from the victim, Mack confirmed she was unresponsive and unconscious and contacted EMS. Prior to medics’ arrival, the victim became conscious and told Mack she did not where she was or how she got there. She confirmed that Alfaro was an acquaintance who earlier was supposed to have driven her home.
The victim stated she had not given Alfaro permission to undress her and was not having any type of consensual sex with him.
Sgt. Mack called the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office and explained the situation in detail to the intake Assistant District Attorney, who told Mack the DA’s office would accept charges for attempted sexual assault, a third-degree felony.
MCHD Medic 13 transported the victim to the Conroe Regional Medical Center Emergency Room
Alfaro was booked into the Montgomery County Jail, where he later posted $23,000 bond and was released
