EDCOUCH, Texas (KGBT) – Investigators have arrested a father and son accused of sexually assaulting twin 14-year-old girls.

The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office started investigating the case during September, according to criminal complaints against the men.

Child Protective Services contacted the Sheriff’s Office with information about “two 14-year-old twin sisters reporting they were sexually abused,” according to the criminal complaints.

KGBT is withholding details about how the men knew the twin girls to preserve their anonymity.
