Palmdale Man Arrested For Child Molestation
Israel Barajas, a 29-year-old Palmdale resident, was arrested July 22nd and is being accused of molesting two young girls under the age of 10 in Simi Valley.
The two girls knew each other but were not related. Barajas apparently knew the two girls through an acquaintance of his.
One of the little girls told her mother what was going on and the mother immediately contacted the police. Investigations began promptly and to protect the victims, the specific incidents and place of incidents were not disclosed.
Barajas is suspected to have molested each girl on more than one occasion.
The case is still under heavy investigation and it has not been disclosed whether Barajas is using a public defender or a Los Angeles Sex Crime Attorney.
Barajas is charged with lewd acts on a child under the age of 12 which can result in state prison, fines up to $10,000, and mandatory sex offender registration as required by California Penal code section 290.
He turned himself in to the police and is being held in the Ventura County jail on $100,000 bail.
