A man is behind bars after he allegedly raped a 13-year-old girl multiple times.

Hidalgo County Sheriff Deputies originally responded to a domestic dispute call on the 38000 block of Miguel Street in Penitas Monday.

They came in contact with a woman who said her niece had been raped by Ramiro Cortazar.

The Children TMs Advocacy Center spoke with the 13-year-old where she reportedly admitted that 59-year-old had sexually assaulted her.

Investigators said Cortazar he allegedly admitted to the assaults.

The 59-year-old was arrested on aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Action 4 News does not identify victims of sexual assault, but Cortazar did have contact of the victim through family.

He remains behind bars at the Hidalgo County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
