SANTA ANA (CNS) - A Saddleback High School safety officer was charged Monday with sexually assaulting an underage girl in Santa Ana.

David Escobar, 44, of Santa Ana, was charged with two felony counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child - oral copulation with force or fear, according to court records. The allegations date to mid-May 1999, according to court records.

An adult woman recently came forward to police alleging he molested her multiple times when she was four-years-old, Lopez said. Escobar was 20 years old at the time, according to Santa Ana police Sgt. Maria Lopez

While investigating the woman's allegations, police identified another alleged victim, who is now an adult, but said she was molested when she was a teenager, Lopez said. The criminal complaint lists only one alleged victim.

Lopez declined to say how Escobar knew the alleged victims, but said he did not meet them through an after-school program that he coordinated for the city's parks and recreational department from July 1996 through September 2011.

Investigators suspect there could be more alleged victims and asked anyone with information helpful to detectives to call 714-245-8732 or email Orange County Crime Stoppers will accept anonymous tips at 855-TIP-OCCS.
