A Glen Rose man remains behind bars following an arrest for sexual assault two weeks ago. The alleged victim, an adult female, was reportedly acquainted with her assailant when the alleged attack occurred earlier this month.
Jesus Bonilla, Jr., 30, is being held in the Hood County Jail on a pair of felony charges, including second-degree felony sexual assault and manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, a first-degree felony.
According to Investigator Wayne Rogers, law enforcement officials were first alerted to Bonilla's activities when responding to a March 5 disturbance in Glen Rose. At that time, the suspect was arrested for disorderly conduct, a class C misdemeanor.
While Bonilla was released on that charge, investigation into the disturbance revealed his alleged victim.
"Upon execution of the sexual assault warrant, we found a quantity of dope in his pocket and in his vehicle," Rogers said.
The substances - believed to be methamphetamine and heroine - have been sent to a Texas Department of Public Safety laboratory for analysis.
Bonilla is being held on a combined bond of $150,000.
Citing the ongoing investigation and pending indictment, Somervell County Sheriff Greg Doyle said additional details on the case are being withheld at this time. But Doyle did applaud investigators for their quick police work and taking a potentially dangerous man off the streets.
If indicted and found guilty of the charges, Bonilla faces 5-99 years in prison for the drug offense and 2-20 years for the sexual assault.
