17-year-old Jayden Bruce of Abernathy has been arrested for aggravated sexual assault of a child.

KAMC News reports that officers were called to a residence in North Lubbock back on Sunday, September 20th. The victim said that Bruce, a family friend, was alone with her in the house.

It's said that Bruce exposed himself to the girl, who hadn't yet reached the age of 14, and also insisted she touch him. The victim says she reminded Bruce of her age but he went forward regardless.

He remains in the Lubbock County Detention Center on a $250,000 bond.
