Milpitas police are seeking potential victims of a 28-year-old man with at least five aliases who was arrested in connection with the sexual assaults of a teenager he met using social media, a police spokesman said today.
John Molina was arrested by Milpitas police at a home on Pendragon Lane in East San Jose on Nov. 12 on suspicion of multiple sexual assaults on a 15-year-old victim, police Lt. Henry Kwong said.
Molina, whose middle name is Markandres, is being held today on $150,000 bail at the Santa Clara County's Elmwood Correctional Complex in Milpitas, according to online jail records.
Police learned in October about a possible sexual assault in Milpitas and from an investigation found that Molina had portrayed himself as a student at Independence High School in San Jose and met the victim through a social networking site when the victim was 15 years old, Kwong said.
According to police, Molina deceived the victim as to his identity and then allegedly sexually assaulted the teen repeatedly over an extended period of time prior to his arrest.
Molina has ties to people in San Diego and Hawaii and has used five aliases, including Mike Velasco, Johnny Velasco, Johnny Andres Velasco, Johnny Mike Andres Velasco and Christian James Velasco, police said.
Police are looking for information from others who may have been victims of assaults by Molina and anyone with information about him is asked to call the Police Department at (408) 586-2400.
