A 67-year-old Rancho Cucamonga was arrested this week in connection with the sexual abuse of six girls under 14, officials said Friday.
A six-month investigation into allegations concluded with the arrest of Richard Allen Sepe on Wednesday, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.
Investigators discovered evidence of the continuous abuse, officials said without elaborating.
The victims were between the ages of 5 and 13.
Sepe was booked on suspicion of continuous sexual abuse of a minor under the age 14, oral copulation with minor under 14, lewd or lascivious acts with child and digital penetration, officials said.
His is being held on $500,000 bail.
The Sheriff’s Department did not release any additional details about the allegations.
