FORT WORTH, Texas – Fort Worth police have arrested a 36-year-old truck driver in connection with the assault of a 12-year-old girl who was walking to her school bus in April.

Terry Wayne King II, who has lived in Fort Worth, was arrested Tuesday morning in Oklahoma City by officials with the U.S. Marshal’s Service on suspicion of injury to a child causing serious bodily injury.

Fort Worth police spokesman Sgt. Chris Britt said King is being held in Oklahoma City.

The girl, who was identified as being 13 when the attacked happened, was taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center. She is still hospitalized with serious injuries, police said Wednesday afternoon.

The girl’s father said his daughter is struggling in the hospital and awaiting a new heart in hopes that a transplant operation can be performed.

Britt said the injuries to her heart were caused directly by the assault. Before she was attacked, the girl was a healthy 12-year-old, who resisted her attacker, Britt said.

Police say they don’t know why King allegedly attacked the girl. Police said he doesn’t know her or her family and that she was not sexually assaulted.

The girl had left her home just after 6:30 a.m. to walk to the school bus stop at Calmont and Laredo. The bus driver called 911 shortly before 7 a.m. saying a student had stepped onto the bus and was bleeding.

School officials at the time said she was approached by a man who asked her for help, and that she fought him off.

Investigators were able to connect King with the assault of an adult in Fort Worth that occurred in January, which led them to the white 2001 Mazda Tribute that King was driving in Fort Worth.

Detective Amelia Heise said the identification of that vehicle led detectives to King in Oklahoma City.

King was tracked to a certain area and Fort Worth police alerted agents with the U.S. Marshals Service who arrested him, police said.
