12 Young Girls Claiming To Be Sexual Assault Victims Have Now Come Forward

The Corpus Christi Police Department’s  Internet Crimes Against Children unit working with officers from the Family Violence unit were able to secure and execute an arrest warrant for Mathew Joseph Lucio, 08/12/1987.   He was booked at the Nueces County Jail on 12/27/2017 with a total bond of $500,000.

Since that time, several more victims claiming that they were sexually assaulted by Mathew Joseph Lucio have come forward.  There are now 12 girls, ages 12-16, that have made allegations of sexual assault against Mathew Joseph Lucio.  The sexual assaults are reported to have occurred between 2007 and 2017.

It has been reported to us that Mathew Joseph Lucio was identifying himself as Kane Luciano on at least one of his social media accounts.  It appears that some of the victims knew him only as Kane Luciano.

Several additional charges of sexual assault of a child and aggravated sexual assault have been added and Mr. Lucio remains in the Nueces County Jail.  His  bond for release from jail has been increased to 1.9 million dollars.

This investigation is ongoing and there exists the possibility of witnesses or other victims that have not come forward at this time.  Anybody with information concerning this case is encouraged to call the lead investigator, Senior Officer Alicia Escobar
at 826-2996.
