On January 11th, Corpus Christi Police arrested 28-year-old, Eulalio Martinez on sexual assault charges .  Officials with CCPD said the charges involved the alleged sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl. 

Martinez had worked for the Diocese of Corpus Christi at the West Side Helping Hand Youth Center as well as the Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish.  

The Diocese of Corpus Christi sent out a press release on January 9th stating that they had terminated Martinez from all parish positions following reports that he was involved in alleged "inappropriate behavior with a youth."  

A representative with the Diocese of Corpus Christi confirmed that Martinez was arrested in connection with the incident.  The Diocese said it notified local law enforcement regarding the suspect and was cooperating with their investigation.

Martinez was processed at the City Detention Center Wednesday with a $100,000 bond.

Police added that their investigation was still ongoing and encouraged anyone with information to contact the Criminal Investigation Division at 361-886-2840.
