LUBBOCK, Texas– A Lubbock man was indicted on two separate counts of sexual assault of a child after court records revealed he assaulted both children since about April 2016.

The first victim was interviewed by police in October 2020 — agreeing to come forward to speak about experiences with the suspect, Christopher Charles Johnson, 38.

When the incidents occurred, the victim said Johnson was “a pedophile,” and he would sexually assault the victim almost every day, court records state.

The victim told Johnson “no,” but he would not stop. Sometimes Johnson would get mad at the victim for saying no and would sometimes assault the victim.

The victim ran away one time, and Johnson punched the victim in the face, court records state.

In another incident, Johnson would not allow the victim to leave. So the victim had to break the window to get out.

Johnson also took photos of the victim’s butt and sent them to his ex-girlfriend. Court records state she broke up with Johnson after that.

Additionally, one time the victim walked in and found a sibling being sexually assaulted by Johnson.

Johnson remained booked in the Lubbock County Detention Center Wednesday in lieu of bonds set at $200,000.
