KATY—A Katy-area man has been arrested on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Jason Charles Ernstes was arrested last week after a standoff with Fort Bend County deputies.
They said Ernstes had threatened to kill himself, but eventually surrendered.
The victim, identified only as a pre-teen girl, told her mother the assault occurred on Wednesday, June 27.
Ernstes remains in the Fort Bend County Jail under a $100,000 bond.
