Jose Lara, 56, accused of sexual assault of a child

SAN ANTONIO – A child accused Jose Lara of sexual assault in 2014. By the time officers had a warrant for his arrest, Lara was gone.

The 56-year-old is wanted for fondling the child who was under the age of 14.

Lara was born in Mexico, but has lived in San Antonio.

He is 5'3" tall and weighs 130 pounds.

"Lara is considered to be a very dangerous predator and he assault children and that's why we need your help to find him, take him off the streets and put him behind bars where he belongs," Deputy U.S. Marshal Chris Bozeman said.

Anyone with information on Lara's whereabouts can call the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force at 210-657-8500.
