Records: Man arrested for sexually assaulting 12-year-old girl
Victim made outcry during therapy session
SAN ANTONIO – A girl's outcry to a therapist has led to an aggravated sexual assault charge against a San Antonio man, authorities say.
Police say 30-year-old Avihay Balila assaulted the girl in June of 2017 when she was just 12 years old.
An arrest affidavit, says the girl told a therapist during a session that she had been sexually assaulted by Balila.
In the affidavit the girl, who is now 15, said she and the suspect met at a wedding and he gave her his card.
She said the next day, she was going past his apartment and he called her over.
She said he then pulled her into a bedroom and had sex with her.
The affidavit says Balila then had sex with her again the next day.
A detective also says he observed electronic messages between the victim and Balila in which Balila does not deny the assaults.
Balila was still in jail Sunday on a $75,000 bond.
