DALLAS (AP) — Police say a second Dallas man has been arrested in the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl who's hearing-impaired.

Twenty-year-old Lucas Martin surrendered to police late Thursday. He was being held Friday on a $250,000 bond at the Dallas County jail, charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Nineteen-year-old Jarvis Fisher was arrested Wednesday and is facing the same charge. He was being held at the jail Friday on a $125,000 bond.

Police say the two approached the girl at a Dallas park Tuesday and communicated with her through text messages. The Dallas Morning News, citing an arrest warrant, reports they took her to Fisher's home where both men assaulted her. They previously asked her for sex but she had declined.

She later returned to the park and police were notified.
