Intruder Breaks in Home + Sexually Assaults Young East Texas Girl

Smith County Sheriff’s Department

A Smith County man is in custody after he allegedly broke into a home and sexually assaulted a young girl.

Marcus Allen Edmiston, 26, was arrested by the Smith County Sheriff’s Deputies for breaking into a home off south FM 756 in the early morning hours of June 11 and sexually assaulting a minor female.

Edmiston was taken into custody Wednesday night and charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit sexual assault. Additional charges may be filed against Edmiston pending the outcome of the ongoing investigation. He is jailed on bonds totaling $750,000.

Members of the Smith County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division were able to identify Edmiston as the suspect from a description given by the victim and from interviewing other residents who live in the area. Smith County Sheriff’s Office Detectives have been working diligently on this investigation since it was reported.
