Chino Hills police jailed a 56-year-old Victorville man Aug. 31 on suspicion of continuous sexual abuse of a child after an investigation opened in January, the department announced.
Carlos Manuel Zepeda was arrested at 6 p.m. at the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department headquarters at 655 E. Third St. in San Bernardino, according to San Bernardino County Court records.
He is being held on $750,000 bail at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga on a felony charge of lewd and lascivious acts on a child, jail records show.
The victim reported to Chino Hills Police on Jan. 3 that she had been sexually assaulted by a friend of her mother, said Detective Vincente Quiroz.
