Victorville man arrested for having sex with teen girl

The two met on social networking site

VICTORVILLE • A Victorville man was arrested after investigators learned he was having a sexual relationship with a girl he met on a social networking site, San Bernardino County Sheriff's officials said Wednesday.

Jose Luis Verduzco, 20, was arrested for oral copulation and for lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14, sheriff’s records show.

After being tipped off about the alleged abuse, authorities conducted an extensive investigation and were able to locate Verduzco in a Rancho Cucamonga hotel room on Tuesday, officials said.

It’s believed Verduzco and the victim had been involved in a sexual relationship for a little less than a month, according to Jodi Miller, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s department.

A search of court records indicated Verduzco has no criminal history in San Bernardino County.

Miller said investigators don’t believe Verduzco victimized any other minors.

Authorities advise parents to always be aware of what their children are doing when they are online.
