Norwalk man charged with molesting Riverside County child for several years

RIVERSIDE — A 25-year-old man accused of molesting a Meadowbrook child over a period of several years was charged Tuesday  with multiple counts of lewd acts on a minor.

Guillermo Cuevas of Norwalk, who was arrested Friday, is charged with a dozen counts of lewd acts on a child under 10 years old.

He was being held in lieu of $ 1 million bail at the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning.

According to Riverside County Sheriff’s Department officials, the family of a 12-year-old girl came forward in November to report alleged sexual abuse by the defendant.

Detectives allege that Cuevas engaged in various acts of molestation, beginning when the victim was 5 years old and continuing until last fall in the community of Meadowbrook.

The relationship of the child to the defendant, if any, was not disclosed.

The investigation spanned about two months, after which a warrant was obtained for Cuevas’ arrest. He was taken into custody without incident on Wheatstone Avenue in Norwalk.

The defendant has no documented prior felony convictions in Riverside County.
