A Brownwood man remained jailed Friday in lieu of $500,000 bond on allegations that he sexually abused two girls, both under the age of 10, over a two-year period.
Garrett Curtis, 28, was arrested Thursday on a charge of continuous sexual abuse of a young child or children, Brown County Jail records state.
According to a complaint filed by Brownwood detective Jared Spohn:
Spohn received an intake from Child Protective Services on July 16 stating that one of the girls had made an outcry of sexual abuse while visiting with a relative in another town. The girls were taken to a hospital for treatment and were scheduled for forensic interview and a sexual assault nurse exam (SANE) in Williamson County.
Interviewers were told of sexual assaults that occurred at multiple locations including Curtis’ home, in a deer stand and in a tent, the complaint states.
Spohn learned that Curtis attempted suicide on July 16, the day the allegations were reported, and on July 17. Curtis received mental health treatment, Spohn’s complaint states.
Spohn attempted to schedule several interviews with Curtis, who would agree to a date and time and then call back to reschedule, the complaint states.
