Man charged with girl’s ongoing sexual assault

By CHRISTIN COYNE | ccoyne@weatherforddemocrat.com

A Parker County man was arrested last week on a first-degree felony charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child after a young girl alleged he sexually assaulted her numerous times over a period of years.

Charles Holbrook, 33, remained in the Parker County Jail Thursday night with bond set at $50,000, according to jail records.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit filed with Justice of the Peace Kelly Green, the child told Child Protective Services early in December that Holbrook began raping and sexually assaulting her when she was around the age of 5 and that the abuse continued for years, until August.

She stopped counting the number of incidents, she reportedly told investigators.

“‘I am not going to straight up deny it but I am not going to own up to it,’” Holbrook told investigators, according to Parker County Sheriff’s Office investigator Patrick Snell’s statement.

Men arrested for assaults on their grandfathers

RENO – Two Reno men were arrested over the weekend, charged with third-degree felony injury to the elderly after, Reno police say, the men assaulted victims in their 70s in separate incidents.

Jonathan William Brand, 17, of Reno was arrested Saturday afternoon after his 79-year-old grandfather reported that Brand had been breaking items around the house and shoved him into a table, causing minor injuries to his right arm and back. The man reportedly declined medical treamtent at the scene.

Brand remained in the Parker County Jail Thursday with bond set at $5,000.

Officers responding to a report of a domestic disturbance in the 800 block of Harris Road Dec. 13 found two men engaged in a physical altercation in the bathroom, according to the probable cause affidavit.

One man complied with commands from police while James Geier remained combative, the officer alleges.
