A Waco man is still in jail on a $32,000 bond after police arrested him Tuesday on criminal solicitation of a minor and indecency with a child by contact charges.

Police say Antoine Demetrius Degrate, 39, is a registered sex offender in the area.

On February 6, Degrate reportedly touched a 12-year-old girl inappropriately on a Waco Transit System bus and asked the victim if he could perform a sex act on her.  Police say the girl told the bus driver who then stopped the bus. Degrate reportedly jumped off the bus and ran when confronted.

On Tuesday, U.S. Marshal's Task Force deputies executed a warrant at Degrate's home. Degrate reportedly ran back inside the home before he was arrested. That led to an additional charge of evading arrest.
