A Highland man who is a registered sex offender was arrested Thursday on suspicion of annoying or molesting two girls walking home from San Gorgonio High School, according to the Sheriff's Department.
The girls were walking on Cole Avenue near 14th Street about 3 p.m. Oct. 11 when they were approached by Victor Carrillo, 49, Highland deputies said in a statement.
"He followed them for several blocks in his vehicle, a black Honda CRV, then asked them if they would like a ride," deputies said. "Both victims declined and used their cell phone to take a picture of Carrillo in his vehicle."
Carrillo had allegedly approached one of the victims earlier this week and she was "afraid of what he might try to do," deputies said. "The victims ran home and told a parent who called for deputies."
Based on the victims' photographs and evidence, deputies found Carrillo and his vehicle at his home in the 7000 block of Colwyn Avenue, according to the Sheriff's Department.
"Carrillo is a Registered Sex Offender, currently residing in Highland," deputies said.
He was arrested and taken to West Valley Detention Center for booking on suspicion of sex offender registration violations and annoying or molesting children. His bail was listed at $60,000.
Carrillo is scheduled for arraignment Monday in San Bernardino Superior Court.
Deputies were investigating other reports that Carrillo may have contacted female juveniles under similar circumstances. Anyone with more info was urged to call Detective Andy Garcia at (909) 425-9793.
