      Harlingen man accused of sexually abusing two sisters

      Jaime Belmontes-Castro

      A Harlingen man is behind bars after being accused of sexually abusing two sisters over a period for three years time.

      It all started when a 14-year-old girl ran away from home back on September 21st.

      The girl told police that 39-year-old Jaime Belmontes-Castro had inappropriate sexual contact with her.

      Detectives learned that Belmontes-Castro had also been sexually abusing the girl TMs 16-year-old sister.

      The girls told police that the abuse would happen while they were sleeping and went on for at least three years time.

      Action 4 News is not releasing Belmontes-Castro TMs relationship to the girls due to a policy to protect the identities of victims of sexual abuse.

      Police arrested Belmontes-Castro at his place of work off the 2700 block of East Harrison Avenue on Tuesday afternoon.

      Officers charged him with aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child.

      Belmontes-Castro appeared before a Harlingen municipal judge on Wednesday where he issued $90,000 dollars in bonds.
