An employee of the Beaumont Federal Correctional Center complex was arrested after police discovered a video that they say shows him sexually assaulting a child.

Shane Gotte, 48, was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child on Friday, Oct. 13, according to a post on the Groves Police Department Facebook page.

A report of possible possession of child pornography was made to the Groves Police Department on Thursday, Oct. 12, the post said. The video, which was immediately reported to police after it was found, appears to be from 2015, according to law enforcement.

Investigators responding found a video showing sexual assault and later identified Gotte as the suspect during investigation, according to the post.

Investigators arrested Gotte at his work, where they said he was taken into custody without incident.

Groves Police said there are no other suspects in the case which is still under investigation.
