Police make additional arrest in Las Cruces child sexual assault case

By: Jesse Martinez
LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- Police said another man was arrested in connection to a sexual assault cause involving a young boy.

Police said Juan Antonio Serrano-Jusino was arrested in Carlsbad, N.M., Thursday on a warrant.

Serrano-Jusino, 34, was charged with one count each of criminal sexual penetration of a child, criminal sexual contact of a child, criminal solicitation and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

He was booked into the county jail with bail set at $100,000 cash only. He is expected to be transferred from Carlsbad to the Dona Ana County Detention Center.

Police said Serran-Jusinos arrest is related to the arrest of a 33-year-old man who is accused of using an app to brag about sexually assaulting a boy.

As KFOX14 previously reported, police received a tip that a man later identified as Jason Reyes used a cellphone app to brag about the assault.

Reyes was charged with one count of criminal sexual penetration of a child under 13, two counts of criminal sexual penetration of a child under 16, two counts of criminal sexual contact of a minor, and one count each of criminal solicitation, incest, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and sexual contact of a minor.

Reyes remains in the county detention center with bail set at $100,000.
