A 24-year-old Anaheim man has been arrested on suspicion of lewd acts with a 14-year-old girl who had been missing from her home for two weeks.
Christopher Sergio Hernandez was being held in the Anaheim jail in lieu of $100,000 bail, according to Sgt. Rick Martinez, the city police department's spokesman.
The girl, who was last seen Oct. 30, returned home Wednesday evening saying nothing had happened. Online chats had revealed she left home to meet up with a high school boy, but they never hooked up.
Instead, the girl wound up with Hernandez and was free to leave any time, according to Martinez, who added that she later revealed to police investigators the man had sexual contact with her.
