A Mount Pleasant man was arrested Thursday after police said he tried to have sex with a 14-year-old girl while her relative was in surgery at a Longview hospital.
Diego Mena-Rojas, 52, was charged with indecency with a child, exposure and held Friday in the Gregg County Jail on a $75,000 bond after police said he took the girl to the Globe Inn at 1300 E. Marshall Ave., undressed, and rubbed the girl who refused to take off her clothes.
“(The victim) said that Mena-Rojas started to touch her above her clothes, rubbing her stomach and genital area. She also indicated that he tried to get under her shirt, but quit when she told him no,” according to the criminal complaint filed in the 124th District Court on Wednesday.
