Man Charged with Sexually Assaulting Teens in Lake Elsinore

MURRIETA (CNS) – A 20-year-old man accused of engaging in sex acts with two teenage girls in Lake Elsinore was charged Wednesday with a half-dozen offenses.

Emilio Esteban Ronquillo of Riverside was arrested Friday following a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department investigation. An enhancing allegation of committing a crime while on bail, was also filed.

The defendant, is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail at the Byrd Detention Center, 

According to sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Thomas, in December, deputies at the sheriff’s Lake Elsinore station received reports of a sexual assault on a runaway girl, identified in court documents only as Jane Doe.

The investigation resulted in allegations that Ronquillo had facilitated the victim’s flight and “harbored the juvenile for two days before returning the victim home,” Thomas said.

He said deputies arrested the defendant for his alleged assault on the teenager, but Ronquillo was able to post bond and was released from custody around the start of the year.

“In January, another juvenile victim came forward and disclosed (she was) a victim of sexual assault by Ronquillo,” the sergeant said.

No details were released concerning how the defendant had come into contact with the second girl.

The ensuing investigation culminated in his arrest last week in Hemet.
