An illegal immigrant was arrested about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday on charges of indecency with a child and online solicitation following an undercover operation by Longview police.
The arrest came after a 15-year-old boy told police that an adult, later identified as Sergio Antonio Galacia-Orozco, touched him inappropriately.
According to an arrest report, Detective Kevin Brownlee said the incident occurred Sunday in the 1400 block of Lazy Lane, after the victim said he was approached by an adult female. The woman was later identified as a man.
"The child victim reported that he had been walking in the roadway when the adult female suspect approached him and made conversation. The child victim spoke with the suspect, who touched his stomach and then reached down his shorts," Brownlee said in the report.
The victim said the man, identified as Orozco, gave the boy his phone number and said his name was "La Chica."
The following day investigators made contact with Orozco through text messages.
"During the conversation with investigators, the suspect made arrangements to meet with the 15-year-old child victim to again engage in sexual contact," Brownlee said.
Police arranged to meet the suspect in the 2600 block of Bill Owens Parkway, where Orozco was then arrested.
Police said Orozco admitted to text messaging the person he thought was the victim, and to having sexual contact with the victim Sunday.
Orozco remained jailed Wednesday on bonds totaling $40,000, charged with indecency with a child and online solicitation of a minor. He was also placed on an immigration detainer.
