SAN ANTONIO - A Southwest Bexar County man is facing charges of continuous sexual assault of a child after the case came to light in an unusual way.

The alleged victim, a nine-year-old girl, told it all after she was caught watching pornography in school, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Anthony Garay, 31, was arrested Tuesday as the result of an investigation by the Bexar County Sheriff's Office.

The affidavit said a teacher confronted the girl May 17 after she noticed her watching pornography on a school-issued iPad the previous day.

The girl responded saying that a friend was helping her search the internet for more information on what Garay had been doing to her, the affidavit said.

School officials reported the allegations to the sheriff's office and investigators also questioned the child.

The affidavit said that she told them Garay had been performing sex acts on her since she was seven or eight years old, and continued until last week. She also said that he had done the same thing to her sister.

The court document also said that Garay had been under investigation by Child Protective Services in the past regarding allegations of sexual assault involving the same two children. However, it did not disclose what the outcome of that investigation was.
