Friendswood Softball Coach Charged with Sexual Assault
The coach of a Friendswood youth softball team was charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault and Indecency with a Child. Ryan Jon Loofboro, 34, was arrested Thursday at around 4:00 p.m. in the 100 block of FM 646 N in Dickinson. Friendswood Police received assistance from the Dickinson Police Department, the Texas Department of Public Safety and Galveston County Precinct 8 Constable Jerry Fisher’s office. Loofboro was transported to the Friendswood city jail. His bail was set at $40,000 on each charge.
Loofboro’s charges stem from a report taken in early May that he had sexual contact with a 13-year old Friendswood girl during the 2012 softball season. Following a six week investigation, the Galveston County District Attorney’s Office was provided the results and approved charges. Warrants were obtained for the two charges on June 14.
This investigation underscores the need for constant communication between parents and children. Loofboro’s status as a coach enabled him to have access to children. Police encourage parents who have children in the Friendswood softball league to visit with their children to help any other victims come forward.
