A Killeen man could face five to 99 years in prison after being indicted on a charge of aggravated sexual assault.

A Bell County grand jury indicted Cruz Angel Mendoza, 19, on Wednesday in connection with the Dec. 7 incident in which he and a juvenile male entered the victim's home and attacked him with a broomstick, according to the arrest affidavit.

Mendoza and the juvenile struck the victim with their fists and the broomstick, and demanded he perform oral sex on them, according to the affidavit.

The victim was able to provide descriptions of Mendoza and the juvenile, leading to their arrests.

First Assistant District Attorney Murff Bledsoe said Wednesday that the county attorney's office will handle the juvenile's case and determine his sentencing.
