A man remains behind bars after he allegedly sexually abused a 10-year-old while he was babysitting the girl.

The alleged sexual abuse happened back in 2010 when Alejo Daniel Lugo would watch the then 10-year-old while her mother was working.

Once the mother found out about the sexual abuse, she reported the alleged abuse to the Edinburg Police Department.

Once the report was made, an arrest warrant was issued for Lugo.

Police arrested the 31-year-old earlier this week and booked him into the Hidalgo County Jail on an aggravated sexual assault charge.

Action 4 News does not identify victims of sexual abuse, but Lugo did have access to the girl through family.

A bond has not been set for the 31-year-old, and Lugo remains behind bars.
