Suspect accused of sexually assaulting two children under 10 years old

A Lost Hills man is being held on bail of more than $1 million after his arrest on charges of molesting two young children.

Deputies from the Delano Substation responded to a residence in Lost Hills in late August to investigate an allegation of child sexual abuse.
According to a news release, deputies learned the children, both under the age of 10 years old, told their mother that 46-year-old Francisco Delacruz Sanchez of Lost Hills had sexually assaulted them.
After a detective conducted a lengthy investigation into the allegations, deputies obtained probable cause to arrest him for multiple counts of performing sexual acts with minors.
On Tuesday, deputies contacted Sanchez at his residence in the 14000 Block of Martin Avenue in Lost Hills, and he was arrested and booked into the Central Receiving Facility for several counts of sexual acts with children under 10-years-old and continuous sexual abuse of a child. Sanchez is currently being held on $5,100,000 bail.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the Kern County Sheriff’s Office at 661-861-3110 or the Secret Witness at 661-322-4040.
