UPDATE - Authorities continue to search for Houston rapper Yung Lefty (aka Calderon Texada) . The 27-year-old is believed to be in the San Diego-area. Texada is wanted for skipping on his court appearance for allegedly raping a 16-year-old Houston student.


HOUSTON - Word on the street in at least two states is that a Houston rapper is wanted by the law.

U.S. Marshals are looking for a 27-year-old black man who calls himself Yung Lefty, but his real name is Calderon Texada. He's accused of sexually assaulting a high school student in Aldine and police believe he may be in the San Diego area.

"He challenged the wrong people. You don't wanna challenge us to find him, because we're really good at this," said Alfredo Perez with the Houston U.S. Marshal's Office.

Reportedly Texada picked up a 16-year-old girl walking to Eisenhower High School in 2013, but she never showed up. He allegedly took the girl behind an apartment complex on West Gulf Bank and raped her.

Oddly enough, Yung Lefty spoke to NewsFix in January about reducing street violence.

Texada was arrested and charged, then bailed in more ways than one. He was released, but when it came time for him to face a Harris County judge, he left the court and hasn't been seen since.

Yung Lefty may be able to run, but he can't hide, for long.
