A 20-year-old Moreno Valley man has been using social media to collect salacious pictures of middle school-age girls, deputies allege, and he remains jailed today for 16 counts of suspicion of attempted child molestation and one count of statutory rape.
Roshawn Davis, 20, of Moreno Valley, remained behind bars today in lieu of $2 million bail, records showed today.
Deputies have not revealed what school the children attended, but a deputy assigned to the campus learned Feb. 10 that sexually explicit images were being shared through the web site, deputies said. Detectives later located several of the underage girls.
A search warrant was served on the Internet site, Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Aaron Kent said, and none of the suspected crimes occurred at the middle school.
Davis was arrested Tuesday at his Saddlebrook Lane home. News of the case was withheld until today.
Deputies asked anyone who has information about Davis’ case to call the sheriff’s Moreno Valley station at (951) 486-6823.
