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.
