[ARCHIVED] Abilene Man Arrested for Sexual Assault of a Child


ABILENE, TX – The Abilene Police Department arrested a 31-year-old Abilene man for sexually assaulting a child. Slade Dean King (31yoa) was taken into custody on Friday, April 15, 2022. He is charged with Second Degree Felony Sexual Assault of a Child after a teenage boy made an outcry to police. The teen and King were not previously known to each other. King contacted the boy using a popular social media application posing as a teenage girl to meet up with him at a south Abilene home where the assault took place. King was transported to the Taylor County Jail and has since been released on bond.

 The Department warns parents, and teens who use social media applications to be cautious when interacting with anyone they do not directly know. Social media apps make it easy for predators with malicious intentions to pose as someone else.
