A Del Valle man accused of sexually abusing a young child for years in Live Oak was arrested Wednesday morning at his residence in Del Valle.
Roberto Gauna, 31, is accused of continually sexually abusing a 6-year-old child. The alleged abuse began two years ago. Live Oak police would not disclose Gauna's relationship with the child.
Gauna was arrested Wednesday by the Bastrop County Sheriffs Department, and will be extradited back to Bexar County to face charges in the case. Other agencies across the area are also investigating similar cases of abuse by Gauna.
"He is a suspect in several different counties," said Detective Jason Andrada with the Live Oak Police Department. "I'm not able to give county names at this time because they do have ongoing investigations and we are going to let them do their investigations before anything else is released."
Gauna is currently in the Bastrop County Jail on a $200,000 bond.
