A Moreno Valley man is behind bars for allegedly sexually assaulting a child, officials reported.
Detectives received information on the morning of Friday Sept. 21 regarding a possible crime against a child.
During their investigation, detectives determined Rickey Davis Jr., 39, to be the prime suspect in the case, Sgt. Walter Mendez said.
Members from the Problem Oriented Policing Unit and Gang Team began surveillance in an area the suspect is known to spend time at.
Davis was arrested later that evening after officers watched him walk into the area of Dyna Place and Theresa Avenue in Moreno Valley.
He was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center on charges of committing lewd acts with a child, a sheriff’s report stated.
Anyone with additional information regarding this ongoing investigation is urged to contact Investigator Seltzer with the Detective Bureau at 951-486-6810.
