Salazar said investigators believe the girl had been assaulted multiple times over the course of several months.
The 4-year-old girl is a relative of the suspect, Sheriff Javier Salazar said, but he didn't specify the relationship. Nunez's charge of super aggravated sexual assault of a child means that the alleged victim is under the age of 6, which allows for a harsher sentence structure in Texas. If convicted, he faces a minimum of 25 years in jail.
Authorities are filling out paperwork to ensure the mother is given a protected status pending the outcome of the case, Salazar said.
He was arrested early on Sunday morning after the girl's mother sought help from a local fire department.
It's unknown whether there are additional victims, but it appears that Salazar and the investigators believe that there could be more people out there who have been placed in a similarly disgusting situation. "And that's what's going to happen in this case", said Salazar.
"I would urge anybody that may be undocumented that is a victim of a crime or a witness to a crime to please come forward and report it", he said.
The law provides an exception to the prohibition only in cases where the inquiry is necessary in order to investigate the offense, as in crimes of human smuggling and extortion, or if the inquiry is made in order to "provide the victim or witness with information about federal visas created to protect individuals providing assistance to law enforcement".
Nunez has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.
Nunez, who is a 10-year veteran of the sheriff's office, engaged in physical contact with the child's genital area "which caused pain", Salazar said, adding there was "at least some indication of minor injury". The Sheriff added that he plans to "separate" Nunez from the agency as soon as possible.
