Man arrested in sexual assault case

March 15, 2014


A 20-year-old Hood County man accused of sexually assaulting a woman was arrested at about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday at his home in the 3500 block of Nassau Court in the Nassau Bay I subdivision, Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant Johnny Rose said.

The suspect, Brandon Joseph Latimer, was in jail on the second-degree felony charge as of press time, Rose indicated. He had not yet seen a judge to have a bond amount set.

The female victim knew the suspect prior to the alleged incident, Rose said.

“The victim was not injured, but did submit to a sexual assault exam at a hospital in Fort Worth for evidentiary purposes,” Rose stated.

She was at least 17 years of age, the lieutenant said, but no other information was released because the case is still under investigation.
