Texas authorities have arrested a 22-year-old Houston man and charged him with sexually assaulting a child after he allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old girl he met online.
Investigators believe Gabriel Anthony Gonzalez may have bullied other teenagers and are working with the creators of an Instagram page dedicated to exposing his activities with young girls and women, KPRC reported.
According to the arrest affidavit, Gonzalez first told the victim he was 16, then 17, and then told her he was in his 20s and a sophomore in college. They met in a body shop parking lot between late January and March 1, when the victim said he had sexually assaulted her.
“The suspect nursed young children and young teens across multiple social media platforms,” Lt. Scott Spencer of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. “He used more than half a dozen to a dozen social media platforms to prime young children and adolescents for his sexual assaults.”
The 15-year-old victim told investigators she met him on the Wizz app and continued to chat with him via Snapchat. She said Gonzalez told her he had had sex with girls her own age and the youngest was 13.
Police released several social media profiles they believe Gonzalez used and asked parents to talk to their kids about it:
- Skype: mlgdude9001
- Discord: Hingus#9947
- CashApp: GabrielG9001
- Snapchat: Hingusmcpingus
- Instagram: mr.archangelgabriel
- Facebook: facebook.com/100002317916941
The Instagram page detailing Gonzalez’s activities was created in late 2022 by a group of adult women who had been “harassed and/or interacted” with Gonzalez. They said they knew of at least eight Instagram accounts he used.
“[Gonzalez] did so much to so many women and young girls that eventually we all found each other,” one of the women told KPRC. “We realized every time we posted about how horrible he was for us, a new victim would come out. We thought [the account is] the best way to find more [victims] and to make others wary of him.”
“It’s so relieving,” she said after learning he was in prison.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who may have met Gonzalez in similar circumstances to contact him at 936-760-5800 Option 3 and refer to Case #23A089875.
