UPDATE: A correction was made to the date of the alleged assault based on information given to a Highland Lakes Newspaper reporter by the family of the victim. Readers are asked to keep in mind that what is presented here is not all of the information. See Friday's The Highlander for more details on the case. 



A 21-year-old Horseshoe Bay man was arrested on charge of sexual assault of a child after he allegedly raped a teenage girl by coercion.

Nicholas Bryant Foster was arrested on Nov. 11 on the second-degree felony charge after a teenage girl under 17 years of age made an outcry to her mother, naming Foster as the offender.

According to an arrest affidavit released by the Burnet County Sheriff's Office, deputies were contacted by the victim's mother about the sexual assault of her daughter on Oct. 23. Family of the victim clarified Monday that the assault occurred in the early morning hours of Oct. 22.

The victim told officers she went to a party on the night of Oct. 21 at a girlfriend's house and then went home to her parents’ house in Burnet. Once home, she was contacted by Nick, who had been at the party.

She told officers that “Nick called her and wanted her to meet him up the road in his car.”

According to the affidavit, the girl told officers did not want to, but Nick told her that if she didn't, he would come to her home with a gun and tell her parents about her activities at the party.

The victim’s family told reporters differently – that the girl did not know Foster had a gun until she arrived to meet him.  

The victim walked up the road from her house until she saw a white car.

The victim told officers Foster laid her in the back seat of the car and raped her.

Foster was booked in Burnet County Jail on Nov. 11 on was released the same day on $5,000 bond.
