ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – An Abilene teen is accused of sexually abusing a child under the age of 4. 

Alex Tucker, 17, was arrested Sunday for Indecency with a Child in connection to an online solicitation of a minor investigation.

An arrest report states Tucker was initially investigated for allegedly using social media apps to prey on children online, and during that investigation, detectives learned he had sexual contact with a child under the age of 4 on multiple occasions. 

Tucker is still under investigation for additional child sex crimes and more charges could be forthcoming. 

“The Cyber Crimes unit wants to remind parents that child sexual predators are still using common social media apps to target your children. Parents need to monitor children’s use of these applications,” according to the report.
