Army recruiter charged with sexual assault had contact with other victims, police say | The Blotter

A U.S. Army recruiter charged with sexual assault in a 2009 incident involving a Atkins High School student had contact with “several” more victims, Austin police said Thursday.

Now, police are asking anyone who has information about Staff Sergeant Roland Benavides, an Army recruiter since 2008 and worked in an Austin office, or any potential victims, to come forward.

As a recruiter, Benavides, 35, had access to high schools throughout Central Texas, said Austin police detective Michael Crumrine.

“It’s incredibly troubling,” he said.

Benavides was charged Tuesday after a woman came forward claiming she was assaulted when she was an Atkins High School student and considering a career in the military, police said.
