LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – NewsChannel 11 has learned new details about the arrest of a man connected to the sexual assault of an 87-year-old Lubbock woman.

Just before 6 p.m. Monday, NewsChannel 11 learned of an arrest related to the case and just before 9 p.m., Joshua Paul Stephenson, 21, was escorted into the Lubbock County Jail.  Public records indicated Stephenson's last known address was in Idalou.  

Police have been looking for leads ever since the January 16th home invasion and sexual assault near 63rd and Peoria.  Authorities have not said that Stephenson raped the woman, rather that he is charged with using her stolen ATM card. 

A mugshot of Stephenson and a photo that police previously released from the ATM surveillance camera do bear a resemblance of each other. Stephenson is officially charged with credit or debit card abuse and held on a $75,000 bond. 

NewsChannel 11 has learned from sources that other charges could be forthcoming against Stephenson.  He is likely to make his initial appearance before a judge on Tuesday.
