Jacob Manuel Sanchez

On June 13, 2019, deputies serving the city of Menifee were patrolling the area of Discovery Park located in the city of Menifee. At 2:30 AM, deputies contacted the occupants of a vehicle parked at the location. During their contact they discovered the vehicle was occupied by a male adult and a female juvenile who were engaged in lewd acts. The lewd acts were later determined to be criminal in nature due to the victim’s age. The male adult was identified Jacob Manuel Sanchez, a 20-year-old resident of Menifee.

During the course of the investigation, it was determined Sanchez and the juvenile met through various social media platforms. Through social media the suspect identified himself to the female juvenile and made her believe he was under the age of eighteen. As a result of the investigation, Sanchez was arrested for lewd acts with a minor and booked into Cois Byrd Detention Center.

Due to the nature of the investigation, it appears there could be additional victims who have not come forward at this time. Anyone with information related to this investigation is encouraged to contact Deputy Matt Cook at the Perris Station by calling 951-210-1000.
