GUYMON, Okla. – The Guymon Police Department requested the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation’s assistance with a child sexual abuse investigation.

On Aug. 29, an 11-year-old child reported to the Guymon Police Department that she had been sexually assaulted in May 2019. The suspect, Gerardo Valles Avalos, 31, knew the child because they lived in the same home, although they were not related.

Agents from the OSBI and the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control interviewed Avalos. Based on his interview, Avalos was arrested and booked into the Texas County Jail. He is facing multiple charges including two counts of Child Sexual Abuse, two counts of Lewd Molestation and one count of Rape by Instrumentation.

The Guymon Police Department and OBNDD assisted the OSBI with this investigation, which is still ongoing.
