The Long Beach city employee arrested last week on suspicion of sexually abusing a 5-year-old child is now facing three felony counts in the case.
A 13-year employee of the City of Long Beach was arrested Thursday afternoon for allegedly sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl about a decade ago, authorities said.
New evidence suggests the victim suffered a sexual assault in addition to major trauma to her upper torso, which resulted in her death.
The former Hermosa Beach police officer lives in Long Beach and tried to meet up with someone he thought was a 16-year-old, authorities say.
Authorities are attempting to identify a man suspected of exposing himself to underage girls on at least five occasions in different parts of the city in recent weeks, according to the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD).
