A 31-year-old man suspected of sexually assaulting a Lake Elsinore child was arrested Friday.

Javier Moreno Loma of San Juan Capistrano was booked into the Byrd Detention Center in Murrieta on suspicion of lewd acts on a child and penetration of a minor with a foreign object.

Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff Reese said that detectives were informed of the alleged abuse last month and initiated an investigation.

The alleged acts occurred at a residence in the 700 block of Quail Drive, near Nashland Avenue, in December 2017 and January 2018, according to Reese. He did not explain why it took more than three years for the victim, whose gender and age were not released, to come forward.

The relationship between the suspect and victim, if any, also was not disclosed.

No background information on Loma was available.

Anyone with details that might help the investigation was asked to contact the sheriff’s Lake Elsinore station at 951-245-3300.
