Investigators arrested a McAllen man last week after he failed a polygraph exam and admitted to molesting a 5-year-old girl, according to the criminal complaint against him.
At 3:10 p.m. on March 7, a policeman met with a polygraph examiner about the child abuse allegations.
The polygraph examiner said Victor Alejandro Guzman, 32, of McAllen confessed to molesting a 5-year-old girl, according to the criminal complaint.
CBS 4 News is withholding details about how Guzman knew the 5-year-old girl to preserve her anonymity.
The McAllen Police Department sent an investigator to speak with Guzman about the allegations.
Guzman said he agreed to the polygraph exam to prove he didn’t molest the girl — and it “backfired,” according to the criminal complaint. While Guzman wouldn’t tell the investigator what, exactly, he said during the polygraph exam, he admitted to molesting the girl.
“Victor Alejandro Guzman stated he knew it was wrong but did it anyway,” according to the criminal complaint.
Guzman is charged with indecency with a child, a second-degree felony.
Guzman’s attorney wasn’t available for comment.
