SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The New Braunfels Police Department is reporting the arrest of a man accused of using social media to engage a child in a sexual performance.

Police were alerted to the activity when the child, who lives in New Braunfels, reported what was going on.

They launched an investigation and were able to track down the man believed responsible. Police arrested 31 year old Brandon Dmichael Lively at a home in Harker Heights, near Killeen.

Lively was arrested without incident and the Bell County Sheriff’s Department transported Lively to the Comal County Jail. He’s been booked on two warrants for 1st Degree Felony Sexual Performance of a Child under the age of 14 years old.
