Victor Rodriguez, 25, was arrested May 8 on suspicion of sodomy, oral copulation and other lewd acts with a child, the Victorville Police Department said in a news release.

The alleged sexual relationship was discovered when the girl’s mother looked through her daughter’s text messages, authorities said.

After an investigation, authorities said they learned Rodriguez had been in the relationship for more than a year.

Rodriguez was taken into custody at his home in the 14300 block of McArt Road, questioned at the Victorville Police Department and then arrested.

He was scheduled to appear in Victorville Superior Court on Friday but it was not immediately clear what occurred in court.

Police believe there could be additional victims and released a photo of Rodriguez.
