RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — Police have arrested a Riverside County man they suspect of having a sock fixation.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise says Alexis E. Garcia was arrested last week.
Murrieta police believe that over the past two months, Garcia has driven up to girls 11 to 17 years old near schools and talked to them about their socks because — investigators believe — he has a sexual fixation.
The 31-year-old was arrested after a detective allegedly saw him speaking with a girl last Friday. He was booked on suspicion of child annoyance, contacting a child with intent to commit a sexual offense and possession of child pornography.
Garcia was released Saturday on $5,000 bail. He couldn't be reached for comment Monday and had no public phone listing.©2014 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
