PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (KXAN) — An 18-year-old Connally High School student is being sought after police say he sexually assaulted a classmate in the school’s auditorium earlier this month, an arrest warrant said.

The girl told police she received a text message from Jaquon Rogers on Jan. 14 asking her to meet him in the Performing Arts Center. After meeting Rogers in the balcony, the girl said he attempted to kiss and touch her body before forcing her to the ground, the document said.

Rogers then held the girl down and covered her mouth while sexually assaulting the girl, according to the affidavit.

The girl reported the assault to a teacher on Jan. 16, the affidavit said. The teacher then escorted the girl to the school resource officer.

During the officer’s investigation of the auditorium, he found a used condom and a blood stain on the carpet in the vicinity of the alleged assault, the document said.

On Jan. 17, Rogers agreed to a non-custodial interview with police at the Pflugerville Justice Center. Rogers told police the two had sex, but said he did not feel he used force, the document said.

Rogers stated that the girl said, “I can’t do this,” and he stopped and left, disposing the condom in a stairwell, according to the affidavit.

He has been charged with sexual assault, a second-degree felony.

Pflugerville ISD Police Chief William Edwards told KXAN he believes Rogers is still in the region and hopes an arrest will be made in the next day or two.

To keep up with a growing district, PISD formed a police department in 2008. The force is comprised of 20 officers, with two assigned to each high school and one at each middle school. The others rotate among the elementary school campuses. They also have two canine units.

“We believe in our security arrangements,” Edwards said. “We’ve never had an incident like this at a Pflugerville school and we were shocked to hear about it.”
