Plumber charged with sexual assault of 4-year-old West U girl in her home

October 24, 2018


A 23-year-old man is out on $50,000 bond tonight after being arrested and charged with the alleged sexual assault of a four-year-old West University girl in her home.

Authorities said Brandon Bonds was a plumber who was working on the girl’s home on Aug. 25, and that a protective order has been issued to prevent him from approaching the girl at home or any care facility or school.

According to court documents outlined by ABC-13, Bonds came to the home with another plumber who went inside with the homeowner to look into installing a toilet. Bonds was reportedly left in the backyard to wait, and the homeowner locked the door.

The homeowner was reportedly surprised to see Bonds inside the home a short time later. The pair completed the plumbing work, but about 10 minutes after they left, the girl told her father she had opened the back door for Bonds, and that he sexually assaulted her when she sat down to watch television.

The girl was examined by doctors, and she was able to describe the suspect’s clothing. The D.A.’s Office accepted charges on Oct. 17, and West University police made the arrest Monday.

Bonds has been charged in court with super aggravated sexual assault of a child under the age of six. He is due back in court next Monday.
