A Highland woman has been arrested following a monthlong investigation into the sexual abuse of a 14-year-old girl, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said Friday.
Investigators began looking into the case on June 17 after learning of alleged sex crimes against the teen by a woman, according to a sheriff’s news release.
The investigation led to the arrest of 24-year-old Joana Aide Aguilar, who was determined to have sexually abused the girl, the Sheriff’s Department stated.
Aguilar was booked into jail Thursday on suspicion of arranging a meeting with a minor for sex, penetration with a foreign object and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the release. Her bail was set at $250,000.
The investigation remains ongoing and anyone with information — or anyone who believes they were victimized by the suspect — is urged to call the sheriff’s Crimes Against Children Detail at 909-387-3620.
