Investigators Seek Additional Victims of Sexual Assault Suspect

STANTON, Calif. (March 15, 2017) – On Wednesday, March 15, 2017, Orange County Sheriff’s Department Special Victim’s Detail (SVD) investigators arrested Efrain Juarez, 55, of Stanton, following allegations he sexually assaulted a 42- year-old female at a local massage business.

On Thursday, Feb. 6, the victim told deputies Juarez sexually assaulted her while receiving a massage from him at Mex Massage Sobador in the 6900 block of Cerritos Avenue.

During the investigation, SVD investigators discovered Juarez was the owner of Mex Massage Sobador and potentially had access to multiple clients a day.

Juarez was booked into Orange County Jail for sexual penetration by a foreign object and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, March 17. He is being held on $100,000 bail.

Due to the number of clients in the area, SVD investigators believe there may be additional victims. Anyone with additional information or anyone who believes they were a victim is asked to call the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Special Victims Detail at 714-647-7419 or 714- 647-7000.
