A Texas man is in jail on Monday after being arrested for sexually assaulting a woman with a cucumber.
According to court documents obtained by KGBT, Jesus Guadalupe Escobedo was arrested by Cameron County Sheriff’s investigators after a victim came forward with the allegations in June.
The woman said that Escobedo had threatened to make a child perform sex acts because she had refused to perform them herself. He then allegedly pinned her down and sexually assaulted her on the floor.
KGBT reported that the woman said a religious program was on in the room during one instance of the alleged assault.
Escobedo assaulted the woman multiple times, the court documents stated. Forensic evidence and measurements were taken from a cucumber, which may have been used to abuse the woman.
Court documents claimed that Escobedo admitted to watching pornography prior to the assaults.
Escobedo was being held in lieu of $150,000 bond. He was due back in court on July 21.
