MIDLAND - A guy in Midland landed himself in the slammer after he got drunk and then tried to take advantage of a 10 year old girl and offered her $20 to keep her mouth shut.

23-year-old Sergio Lopez Garcia was sitting in his car outside a house when he was arrested Sunday night.

But earlier that night, he had gone into the girl's room, placed his hand over her mouth and began touching her.

He told her he would kill her if she didn't let him.

Then he took her into a bathroom and shoved her up against a wall and revealed himself to her.

The girl broke free and ran to wake up her mother.

A sane exam was given to the girl and it confirmed what she was saying.

Lopez remains behind bars on a $75,000 bond.
