Child predator wanted in month-long crackdown

April 1, 2008 9:50:22 AM PDT
Officials are featuring a different child predator each day for Child Abuse Prevention Month in an effort to catch these felons and make the streets safer for children.During the month of April, Crime Stoppers will launch this aggressive campaign to protect children. The initiative will focus on locating felons who remain at large for offenses against children. The child predators are wanted for victimizing our children, for failing to register as sex offenders, or for failing to comply with their probation requirements after being convicted of a sexual offense against a minor.

A different felon will be featured each day, beginning today.

Albino Martinez Armijo was charged May 5, 2006 in the 337th District Court with two counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child. Each warrant carries a bond of $30,000.

His victim was a 12-year-old non-blood family member who stated that Armijo had molested since she was 7 years old. The molestation escalated into two separate sexual assaults -- one on February 10, 2006 and the other one month later on March 10, 2006. The victim made outcry to a family member and related the incidents to authorities in an April 11, 2006 interview at the Children's Assessment Center. She said that previously she had not said anything about the molestation because Armijo told her if she did she would "feel the pain."

Armijo, 41, is described as an Hispanic male, 5' tall, 170 pounds, bushy black hair, brown eyes, mustache and goatee, medium complexion with a medium build. His last known address was 1206 Paul Quinn, Houston, Texas.

Due to the unprecedented success of last April's campaign and the unprecedented number of felons who were found, Crime Stoppers has received a tremendous amount of support for this month long initiative from community members and law enforcement. Working together, we look forward to continued success in locating and arresting wanted felons who have victimized our children.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest of any of these fugitives. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of any fugitive felon is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. All callers remain anonymous.
