League City police say a little girl was using an app on her phone when she received a message from someone who said they were with a modeling agency.

The so-called agency claimed they were going to send over a representative to do a personal evaluation.

The child gave her address and within 15 minutes a man arrived at her house and allegedly sexually assaulted the child.

League City police officer John Griffith says, "It only took him 15 minutes to get to her house. It's very possible that he lives close by."

Griffith says the parents had no idea about this.

Police say Joel Acuna turned himself in Tuesday after seeing his images on Facebook in surveillance pictures. He's accused of sexually assaulting a little girl that he met on a phone app.

Police believe there could be other victims.
