AUSTIN (KXAN) – A 20-year-old man is being held on a charge of sexual assault of a child and an immigration detainer after police say he confessed to having sex multiple times with a 13-year-old girl.

A concerned caller from a hotel led police to Leonardo Monico Cordero and the 13-year-old girl. According to court documents, the caller was suspicious because the girl looked very young.

Friday, Police went to the Red Roof Inn at 8210 N Interstate 35 in Austin where they met with Cordero and the girl. There they met Cordero and the girl. Cordero told officers he’d known the girl for about four months and that they had sex several times.

Cordero was taken into custody and booked into the Travis County Jail where he is being held without bond on an immigration hold. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
