Teen accused of sexually assaulting girl at North Side home
A teenager was delivered to police after relatives interrupted his alleged sexual assault of a 6-year-old girl Sunday at a North Side home.
Angel Hinojosa, 17, was charged with super-aggravated sexual assault of a child Monday. His bail was set at $75,000.
According to his arrest warrant affidavit, Hinojosa allegedly invited the girl into a bedroom to play at about 9 p.m. He then locked the door, removed her clothes and sexually assaulted her, investigators said.

Another relative was searching for the girl and knocked on the door as she was being assaulted, according to the affidavit. Hinojosa allegedly placed an index finger on his lips, signaling her to be quiet, investigators said.
Moments later, Hinojosa opened the door and said that the girl must have locked it when she went in to play.
The relative noticed that the girl’s clothing was crooked and her appearance was “disheveled,” the affidavit states.
When relatives questioned the girl, she told them what occurred and they took Hinojosa to police, who arrested him.
Investigators accused Hinojosa of abusing the girl in a similar manner for some time before Sunday’s incident.
