A Riverside County man accused of sexually abusing his friends' daughter was arrested by San Diego police this week, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.
Sean Damewood, 52, was taken into custody in Ocean Beach Monday on child sexual abuse allegations.
Sheriff's investigators said a girl in unincorporated Riverside County told them she was sexually abused by a long-time family friend, Damewood, for about four years. The alleged abuse started when the girl was 5 years old and lasted until she was 9, officials said.
Damewood has since been transported back to Riverside County and booked into the Southwest Detention Center on multiple counts of child molestation.
