Detectives and Patrol Officers made a third arrest in the case of a woman that was sexually assaulted after soliciting prostitution through social media.

Officers arrested Jared Travon Jones, 17-year-old Beaumont resident, at his residence in the west end of Beaumont.  Jones phoned Detectives to surrender voluntarily after he learned he had outstanding warrants stemming from his participation in the August 8 assault.

Officers booked Jones into the county jail on a warrant for Aggravated Sexual Assault, a warrant for Aggravated Robbery, and a warrant for Aggravated Kidnapping.  Each charge holds a $100,000 bond.

Jones is one of six men accused of sexually assaulting a Houston area woman after she placed an ad on backpage.com soliciting prostitution.  During the arranged meeting in Beaumont, the men forced her into a house and sexually assaulted her.  Detectives had previously arrested two other men charged with the attack.
