MCTXSheriff Makes Arrest for Aggravated Sexual Assault
On May 14, 2020, Detectives from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office - Special Victim’s Unit, began investigating a Texas Department of Family and Protective Services’ case involving two small female children, ages 4 and 6. The children were allegedly assaulted (sexually) by the neighbor who lived near them. During the investigation, Detectives identified the neighbor as Dalton Campbell, a 71 year old male.
It was further discovered that Dalton had attempted to coerce many of the children in the area into coming over to his house by giving them gifts. Dalton also intentionally sought out employment throughout his life that put him into close contact with children. Pursuant to the investigation, Detectives obtained a warrant for Dalton who was later arrested, and booked into Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Jail with a $140,000 bond.
Detectives are asking anyone who may have been in close contact with Dalton, or who have allowed their children to be in close contact with Dalton, to please contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 936-760-5800 in reference to Case# 20A156159.
