A 72-year-old North Platte man is in jail after he allegedly sexually assaulted two girls at his apartment.
On June 4, North Platte Police opened an investigation into a sexual assault after receiving a complaint from a 12-year-old female, that she and her 13-year-old friend had been sexually assaulted.
Both juveniles were interviewed at separate Child Advocacy Centers, and stated that, on June 3, they had been swimming at the apartment complex located at 221 West Francis.
They say Francisco Garcia invited them up to his apartment. Once in the apartment, the girls said Garcia paid them to perform a sex act and sexually assaulted them.
Following further investigation, police determined that there was probable cause to arrest Garcia and charge him with two counts of 1st degree sexual assault of a child.
An investigator met with Garcia on August 12, and placed him under arrest.
He was jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
