Md. man arrested for sexually assaulting girl before birthday party
News


LAUREL, Md. (WUSA9) -- A Laurel man was arrested Thursday after police say he sexually assaulted a seven-year-old girl while her family was setting up for her birthday party.

Luis Alberto Cruz-Aguilar is accused of sexually assaulting the girl while at her house in August to help the family set up for the party. Laurel police say he lured the girl into another room, sexually assaulted her and left the house.

The family only knew Cruz-Aguilar, 40, as an acquaintance and did not have his address, police said.

Cruz-Aguilar was arrested Thursday morning at a job site in Baltimore County by Laurel police. He was taken into custody without incident.

During the investigation, police learned that Cruz-Aguilar had an outstanding warrant for a fourth-degree sex offense in the 2010 sex assault of a 13-year-old girl. Police say he never showed up for court and had been on the loose until now.
