Arrest Made in Mall Sex Assault

Surveillance tape shows sexual assault suspect preparing to enter the women's bathroom at Moreno Valley Mall.

Investigators released surveillance video of a man who is suspected of molesting a child in a women’s bathroom at the Moreno Valley Mall.

The attack happened at 6:15 P.M. on Sunday at the shopping center at 22550 Town Circle. The child told detectives her attacker was an Hispanic man who followed her into the bathroom.

The video shows the suspect entering and then leaving the restroom about five minutes later, said police.

Officials interviewed several witnesses and hours after releasing the video, they identified Moses Solis, 20, of Rialto as the suspect.

Officers arrested Solis Monday evening without incident according to a Riverside County sheriff's department news release.

He was booked on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child, sexual penetration of a child, lewd acts on a child under 14 years old and secretly videotaping the undergarments of another person with the intent to invade their privacy.

Anyone with any information about this incident should contact the Moreno Valley Police Department at (951) 247-8700 or (951) 486-6811.
