A 23-year-old man has been arrested and accused of kidnapping, robbing, and molesting a 14-year-old boy that he met online. The alleged assault took place on Tuesday after Ramon Santos Velasco offered the teen a ride to school.
The teen fled after realizing Velasco was not driving toward his school. Salinas police investigators say Velasco touched the victim’s genital area through his clothing and also demanded money at knifepoint.
Based on the teen’s description of him and his automobile, police arrested Velasco on Wednesday. He was booked into the county jail on charges of kidnapping, armed robbery and lewd acts on a minor.
