Riverside County Sheriff's Department Press Release

Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Wilfredo Collazo

File # F222900019


On Monday, October 17, 2022, at 11:30 AM, deputies from the Lake Elsinore Station responded to a school in the 18000 block of Grand Avenue, after staff members were alerted of an unknown male being seen on school grounds. School officials immediately contacted law enforcement and followed the suspect until deputies arrived.

The investigation revealed a 15-year-old male suspect and resident of Lake Elsinore, entered the school grounds and committed a lewd act upon a child while on campus. The suspect was not a student of the school and had no permission to be on campus. The suspect then fled the scene on foot, but was arrested by deputies a short distance away on Grand Avenue. During the course of the investigation, one student was identified as being a victim of a lewd act and investigators have identified other students who may also be victims. The school campus was placed on lock down temporarily by school administrators out of an abundance of caution for the students until the suspect was apprehended. Based on evidence obtained at the scene, investigators are certain the suspect acted alone and there are no other suspects wanted in connection for this case.

This investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Investigator Stites of the Lake Elsinore Station at 951–245–3300 or Riverside Sheriff’s Dispatch at (951) 776–1099.
