Spring Valley Village Police Department investigators, with the assistance of Harris County Sheriff’s Office deputies, have arrested a sexual assault suspect as the result of a month-long investigation that began with a routine traffic stop. The suspect, 41-year-old ILICH AUYAPAH GUARDIOLA, was stopped for a traffic violation in April. At that time, a 16-year-old girl was with Guardiola. Police learned that Guardiola was a drama teacher working at several Houston-area acting academies and theaters, and the girl with him was one of his students. Information and evidence uncovered during the investigation led to the issuance of a warrant for Guardiola’s arrest, charging him with Sexual Assault of a Child. Yesterday afternoon (May 8, 2014) with the assistance of members of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Spring Valley Village Police arrested Guardiola at an apartment in northwest Harris County. Guardiola’s alleged 16-year-old victim was with him at the apartment at the time of his arrest. Investigators also learned that Guardiola and his alleged victim had traveled to Las Vegas two weeks ago and were married with the girl’s mother present. Investigators are concerned that there could be other victims and urge anyone with information to contact the Spring Valley Village Police Department at 713-465-8323 or their local law enforcement agency.
