Man faces multiple child indecency charges

WACO, TX - A Waco man has been arrested on multiple counts of indecency with a child involving at least two victims in incidents dating back to 2013.

Tommy Earl Propes was booked into the McLennan County Jail on Sunday after police had been looking for him for over a month.

Investigators obtained an arrest warrant or Propes in January after forensic interviews were conducted with two of the victims.

An arrest affidavit specifies that one of the incidents occurred in December 2013 with the victim telling investigators Propes would tell her that " she was his girlfriend and that she was placed on Earth for this."

The victim told interviewers that she and her sister were together when this happened and the affidavit states that the sister also made an outcry about sexual abuse concerning Propes.

Court papers say the victim could not recall exactly how many times the abuse occurred,. but the affidavit specifies one of the incidents occurred in December 2016.

One of the victims said Propes told her that if she told her mother what was happening that the mother would not believe her.

In one of the arrest affidavits associated with the case, one victim said she knew the abuse also occurred with her sister and one other relative.

Propes remained in the McLennan County Jail Tuesday on three counts of indecency with a child by contact and possession of marijuana with total bond set at $31,000.
