A Brownsville teenager is facing criminal charges after police allegedly caught him having sex with his underage girlfriend.

Brownsville police arrested 18-year-old Victor Ismael Garcia on a sexual assault of a child charge late Friday morning.

Investigators told Action 4 News that officers were called to an abandoned house at 80 King Street near downtown Brownsville.

Neighbors had reported teens inside the home but when officers arrived, they allegedly found Garcia and his 15-year-old girlfriend having sex.

Garcia appeared before a Brownsville Municipal Court judge on Saturday morning where he was issued a $20,000 bond.
