El Paso County Sheriff's investigators have added an additional charge to the man they say is responsible for the alleged kidnapping and sexual assault of a 12-year-old Horizon City girl Friday.
Carlos Holcombe, 43, was initially charged with Aggravated Kidnapping in connection with the alleged incident. EPCSO have now added Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child to the list of charges he faces. His bond has now been set at $1,000,000.

EPCSO authorities allege that Holcombe kidnapped the 12-year-old girl at gunpoint around 5:30 p.m. Friday evening during a football game at Horizon HS. The arrest affidavit obtained Monday morning claims that Holcombe then drove the young girl to his home where he taped her hands together and put tape over her eyes before allegedly sexually assaulting her and driving her to a movie theater fifteen miles away.

According to the El Paso Central Appraisal District, Holcombe purchased his home in Horizon back in November 2007.

NewsChannel 9 has also learned more about his duties on post at Fort Bliss.

According to the Army Knowledge Online system called AKO, he is what's called a logistics assistance representative for TACOM, one of the army's "largest weapon systems research development and sustainment organizations." His capacity is as a civilian employee on post.

The Sheriff's Office is still seeking information from anyone who may have come into contact with the 12-year-old victim at the Cinemark Theater on Monday around 7:45 p.m. Friday night. Sheriff's investigators believe that there may have been several teenage movie goers who had contact with the 12-year-old in the movie theater parking lot before she came into contact with law enforcement.

EPCSO are asking anyone who had contact with the young girl to contact the El Paso County Sheriff's Office at (915) 546-2280.
