A Pasadena man was arrested for alleged sexual assault against a minor that occurred in the city of Corona, officials said in a release Sunday.
Corona Police detectives, with the assistance of the Riverside County Gang Impact Team, located and arrested Andrew San Gabino, 25, of Pasadena on July 22.
On July 19, Corona police officers responded to investigate a sexual assault that had occurred on July 15 at around 2 p.m.
The victim, a 15-year-old, had reported the assault saying she was walking in the area of Corona and Parkridge avenues when an unknown person drove alongside her, asked her for directions, and demanded she enter his vehicle, the release said.
The teenager complied and entered the man’s vehicle as he drove her to a residential area and allegedly sexually assaulted her.

He is being held on a $130,000 bail.
