A Livermore man was arrested for alleged child molestation on Wednesday, and investigators believe there may be other young victims in the community, a police spokesman said. Detectives arrested Joshua Isaiah Rojas, 28, at his Livermore home on Wednesday night on suspicion of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age, according to police spokesman Steve Goard. The arrest came after a sexual assault investigation that began in March. Rojas was arrested without incident and taken to Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, where he is being held on $100,000 bail, according to jail records.
Police believe there may be more victims in the area and are asking parents to talk to their children if they have had contact with Rojas. He is set to appear in court in Pleasanton for arraignment at 11 a.m. Friday. Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call Livermore police at (925) 371-4700.
