HOUSTON – A 14-year-old girl from College Station said a man she met on social media drove from Houston to meet her in person and sexually assaulted her last week.
The victim said Zachary Pierce Hocko, 28, took her to a local hotel in College Station when he arrived on Oct. 4.
The teen girl said she told him she no longer wanted to be there with him and he agreed to take her home. Once she was back in his vehicle he told her he was taking her to Houston.
The victim said Hocko took her to his apartment in Houston where he sexually assaulted her. She also reported that he took videos and pictures with his cell phone.
According to the victim, Hocko dropped her off at a restaurant on Oct. 5. She walked into a business and called home.
Hocko was arrested and transported to jail. He is accused on aggravated kidnapping, sexual assault of a child and improper photography/visual recording.
Hocko remains in the custody of the Harris County Sheriff’s Department without bond on charges related to this investigation. He will remain at that location pending arrangements for transportation back to Brazos County where this case will proceed.
