A Houston man has been arrested by Fort Bend authorities after he was accused of sexually assaulting an 8 year old boy at a Richmond area home last Friday.
Sheriff’s spokesperson Bob Haenel said, “John Dolard, 53, of Houston has been charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. He is in the Fort Bend County Jail with a $125,000 bond.” With the circumstances of the incident, Detectives are looking into the possibility of Dolard having other victims in the Houston area.
Haenel said the mother of the boy contacted authorities when the youngster reported the incident to her. According to Haenel, Dolard befriended the youngster at their Houston church. He then asked the boy’s mother if he could take the child swimming at his sister’s home in the Bonbrook Plantation South subdivision south of US 59 near Rosenberg. Haenel said the report indicated that the boy was assaulted by Dolard at that home.
Detectives searched for Dolard on Saturday and ultimately arrested him Sunday morning in Houston. According to Haenel, Dolard has confessed.
No court appearances were indicated.
