Highlights

The 14-year-old girl’s mother found sexual messages on girl’s computer and called police, affidavit said.

Girl said she met Davionne Vasquez at an Austin camp where he was a counselor, police said.

A man is accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old Round Rock girl he met when he was a counselor at a camp in Austin.

Davionne Dionte Vasquez, 21, was charged with sexual assault, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

The 14-year-old girl’s mother told police Aug. 28 that she had learned from someone else that a 20-year-old man was coming to see her daughter at the family’s home, the affidavit said. The mother also found sexually provocative text messages on her daughter’s iPad from an older man, according to the document.

The 14-year-old girl told an investigator Aug. 30 that she met Vasquez at a camp in Austin where he was a counselor and they became friends, the affidavit said. It said that after camp ended, he wanted to see her and she invited him to her house where they had sex.

An investigator saw several videos on the girl’s phone that showed Vasquez in her bedroom lying in bed next to her, the affidavit said.

It said during a phone call arranged by the police Aug. 31, the girl’s mother accused him of having sex with her daughter. Vasquez said he had come to the house but denied having sex with the girl, the affidavit said.

It said police arranged another phone call between the 14-year-old girl and Vasquez on Sept. 5. During that call, Vasquez said to the girl that he did not tell her mother they had sex, the document said.

It said Vasquez told the girl he didn’t want to get into “cop trouble” for talking to her.

Vasquez was charged Oct. 13 but the affidavit was not released until Monday.

No information was immediately available about why the affidavit was not released sooner. Vasquez was not in custody Monday, according to the Williamson County Jail website.
