GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas — A Galveston County probation officer was arrested on sexual assault charges after multiple alleged victims came forward with complaints.
Eric Alzafari allegedly victimized at least three women who were on probation, according to court records.
He is charged with seven counts of official oppression, two counts of sexual assault, and two counts of sexual contact / intercourse with supervised person.
The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office says Alzafari became the focus of an extensive investigation after officials with Galveston County Community Supervision and Corrections Department received complaints.
The Galveston County District Attorney’s Office was notified of the complaints and referred the investigation to the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division.
Alzafari worked as an assistant supervisor at the Texas City office but has since been fired.
Alzafari was arrested Thursday morning at his Pearland residence.
Neighbors were surprised to hear about the allegations.
"I mean, it's kind of a messed up situation," Brandon Gust said. "It’s always surprising to hear somebody that lives by you was accused of doing something like that."
His bonds total $95,000 on the 11 charges.
