ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

One man is behind bars in connection to an arson and sexual assault investigation.

Brandon Lee Ross, 21, is charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and arson.

We're told that back on Sept. 17, 2017, a sexual assault was reported to Odessa Police.

An investigation revealed that a 16-year-old girl has been sexually assaulted by a known person, later identified as Ross.

Authorities said the investigation also revealed that Ross sexually assaulted the 16-year-old on multiple occasions.

According to the report, on Aug. 27, 2017, Ross became upset with the 16-year-old girl after she refused to have sex with him.

That's when, authorities said, he grabbed her backpack and set it on fire.

Authorities later obtained three warrants for Ross, who has been arrested.
