AUSTIN (KXAN) — A man is in custody after an Anderson High School student told police he sexually assaulted, slapped and attempted to strangle her. Isaac Edward Sosa, 22, was arrested by Austin police and admitted to assaulting the student near campus on Sept. 1.

Running late for school that day, the student was approached by Sosa, who she knows, in the school’s parking lot. He told police he looks young so no one on campus questions his presence. The victim said he threatened her, demanding that she leave school with him.

Sosa took the victim to the alley behind the Galaxy Cafe on Mesa Drive. According to the affidavit, Sosa began begging the girl for sex, but she repeatedly declined his offer. Threatening to kill her, the victim told police he forced her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In attempts to get away from Sosa, the victim told him she wanted to clean herself up and walked to a nearby Mexican restaurant. Sosa followed her into the bathroom and told her if she told police he would kill her. He then slapped her so hard the victim said she thought she was going to pass out. Continuing to threaten her, Sosa began choking the student for an estimated 15 seconds.

During a police interview, Sosa admitted to sexually assaulting the student.

Once she returned to campus, the student notified school officials and police of the incident. Sosa was arrested by police that same day.

Sosa is in custody at the Travis County Jail on a $125,000 bond. He faces charges for the sexual assault and a felony assault charge for strangulation/suffocation.
