A 28-year-old female house guest allegedly raped a 14-year-old autistic Texas boy while his grandparents watched, according to police.
That woman, Jacqueline Flores Alonzo, was arrested Monday and charged with the sexual assault of a child, a second degree felony. San Antonio police booked her into the Bexar County Jail. They set her bail at $50,000. She has a lengthy history of prostitution arrests and convictions.
Officers took Alonzo into custody more than two months after the purported teenage victim “made an outcry” during a forensic interview at ChildSafe, a Bexar County advocacy center that provides services to children traumatized by sexual and/or physical abuse or neglect, according to KSAT.
The boy, now 15, came forward on August 24. He said Alonzo sexually assaulted him when he was 14-years-old. An investigator with Child Protective Services said the victim was “special needs,” diagnosed with a high-functioning form of autism.
It appears the boy’s step-grandmother knew Alonzo. The San Antonio Express-News reported that, in August, Alonzo stayed as a guest in the home of the alleged victim’s grandparents. The alleged victim also was in their home at that time.
KSAT noted Alonzo had recently “got out of jail for prostitution” and the step-grandmother allowed her into their home because Alonzo said she “had nowhere to stay.”
On October 9, police interviewed the boy’s mother and she said her son told her about the sexual assault, according to police records.
Detectives with the San Antonio Police Department then interviewed the grandparents on October 23. The boy’s step-grandmother confirmed she permitted Alonzo to say with them after her release from jail on the prostitution charge. Then, the step-grandmother told police she observed Alonzo having sex with the boy. Additionally, she reportedly told officers that the boy’s grandfather allegedly sat on the couch where Alonzo and the boy had sexual intercourse and he watched.
“She stated that her husband, the victim’s grandfather, was sitting on the couch and watching them have sex,” according to the police affidavit. The Fort Worth Star Telegram reported that when Alonzo and the victim finished, the grandfather tried to have sex with Alonzo “but she would not allow it.”
However, the grandfather denied knowing anything about Alonzo raping his grandson. Instead, he told police his wife lied about what she claimed she witnessed. The grandfather only acknowledged that Alonzo and the 14-year-old stayed in their home at the same time.
Alonzo’s record of prostitution-related arrests date back to 2013, according to online Bexar County Court records. This includes nine arrests and seven convictions. Six days before the alleged victim came forward, Alonzo received two years of probation.
No additional charges have been filed in this case, to date. If convicted on the one count of sexual assault of a child, Alonzo faces from two to 20 years in state prison and a fine up to $10,000.
