A 21-year-old Upland man was arrested after he pretended to be 16 years old when he “engaged in sexual acts” with a 13-year-old girl in Rancho Cucamonga, according to the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department.
Lexter Lance David was arrested on Tuesday, and on Thursday, he was formally charged with 13 counts of committing lewd acts with a minor, police said in an alert.
David and the girl met on a social media platform, where he pretended to be a fellow teenager, police said.
