SIMI VALLEY – A 29-year-old Palmdale man has been arrested for committing sex acts on two young girls he met through a mutual adult friend, authorities said.
Isreal Barajas was arrested Monday after a month-long investigation involving two female juveniles both under the age of 10, according to a press release by the Simi Valley Police Department.
Although Barajas is a Palmdale resident, the investigation revealed that Barajas had committed the sexual acts on both girls in the city of Simi Valley, the press release states.
Barajas is being charged with digital penetration of a child under 10 years old and lewd acts on a child under the age of 14.
He is being held at the Ventura County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail, and he is due in Ventura County Superior Court on Wednesday (July 24) to face charges.
