Authorities in Parker County have arrested a man suspected of molesting a 9-year-old girl as she slept in her home. The man, 35-year-old Israel Andrade, has been deported from the United States on four different occasions.
Parker County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call on Saturday, after a woman called to report her daughter had been sexually fondled by a stranger who broke into her home.
The 9-year-old victim, who had been sleeping on the family couch with siblings, told deputies that she was awakened by a man who was groping her in her private areas.
The girl said the man spoke in broken English with a heavy Spanish accent, asking her to follow him back to the bedroom where he entered the home. Instead, the girl ran screaming into her parents’ room, while the suspect fled in the opposite direction.
The parents attempted to call 9-1-1, but noticed that their cell phones and computer were missing. The mother drove to a nearby convenience store to alert authorities.
During the investigation, a set of footprints was discovered outside the home and traced to a neighbor’s home. Deputies determined that Andrade had visited the neighbor’s home the prior evening.
