An 18-year-old babysitter in San Antonio, Texas, has been arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault, according to local reports.
Police say Esmeralda Medellin performed sexual acts on a 4-year-old boy while babysitting him in March. She allegedly coerced the child to perform sexual acts on her, as well.
Citing the arrest affidavit, The San Antonio Express-News reported that the child alerted his mother to the alleged sexual assault while Medellin was still in their home on March 28. The mother immediately called police, and both the boy and Medellin were taken to the hospital to undergo a sexual assault examination ― the results of which were released on Wednesday and appeared to confirm the child’s account of the assault, reported WOAI-TV.
The boy’s DNA was found on Medellin’s breast, according to Express-News, adding that “male DNA was also found on her genitals, but the sample was not sufficient enough to make a positive comparison.”
