Three men were arrested Sunday after a young girl was believed to have been kidnapped, sexually assaulted and held against her will at a Chino Hills home.
Irving Ramon Galvan, 22, of Chino Hills, was arrested at his home in the 4300 block of Los Serranos Boulevard at 6:09 a.m. after Ontario Police investigators located the girl at the home Sunday, following leads they found through a social media app, said Sgt. Bill Russell.
The unidentified girl was reported missing to the Ontario Police Department by her parents a day earlier, he added.
Mr. Galvan was booked on $500,000 bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, jail records show.
He is facing charges of kidnapping a person under age 14 with intent to commit lewd and lascivious acts, rape of a victim incapable of giving consent, lewd and lascivious acts on a child under age 14 and false imprisonment.
During the investigation, Ontario police also arrested 21-year-old Corona man Encino Limon at 2:15 p.m. in the 1100 block of Grand Boulevard in Corona.
He was booked on $250,000 bail at the West Valley Detention Center on a felony charge of lewd and lascivious acts on a child under age 14. Police believe Mr. Galvan and Mr. Limon worked together in the crime.
A third man— Eric Trejo, 25, of San Bernardino— was arrested at 1:07 a.m. Monday in the 3000 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in San Bernardino.
“Mr. Trejo is believed to have used a social media app to contact the same female,” Sgt. Russell said. “He has been arrested on the charge of contacting a minor with intent to commit a sexual offense.”
Investigators believe the suspects may have been in contact with other victims.
