Two Arrests Made in Irving on Separate Sexual Child Abuse Cases

Christian Antonio Munguia

The Irving Police Department is investigating two separate cases dealing with sexual child abuse.  

On Sunday, April 7, 2024, Irving Officers arrested 25-year-old Christian Antonio Munguia and booked him into the Irving Jail at 1:59 pm.  Munguia is charged with Continuous Sex Abuse of a Child, a first-degree felony.  INS has also requested an Immigration-ICE hold on him due to his illegal status in the U.S.  

Wilmer Umana-Salmeron

Also on Sunday, 33-year-old Wilmer Umana-Salmeron, originally from El Salvador, was taken into custody at approximately 2:43 am.  Umana-Salmeron is charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, a first-degree felony.  

Understanding the Charges

A continuous sexual assault of a child charge requires that the child be 14 years old or younger and at least two acts of sexual abuse occur at least 30 days apart. The state of Texas punishes ongoing abusive sexual relations with a child more harshly than isolated incidents.  The punishment for a continuous sexual assault of a child in Texas is a minimum of 25 years to life and there is no opportunity for parole. The second offense is punished with a life sentence without parole.  In addition to the 25 year minimum, once released from prison, the convicted person will be required to register as a sex offender for life.

Aggravated sexual assault of a child is sex abuse against children age 14 or younger when there is sexual organ contact. The punishment range is 5 years to 99 years in prison or life.

Due to the nature of the crimes and the ongoing investigation, the Irving Police Department could not provide any other details into these two cases.  

Parents Responsability

Parents are urged to be on high-alert to protect their children from sexual predators.  April has been designated Child Abuse Prevention Month and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is encouraging everybody to promote child abuse prevention through their social networks.

The Irving Police Department has also provided red flags to help parents identify child abuse.
