On June 15th, 2021, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by the mother of a 15 year old female who said her daughter had been sexually assaulted.  A deputy made contact with the mother and victim.  The 15 year old victim told the deputy that in February of this year she had met a male on a social media app. The male identified himself as Chase and told her he was 21 years old.  Since February they had sex multiple times.  The male would provide various narcotics to the victim in return for sex.

The deputy had the victim contact the suspect on the social media app and asked him to meet her at a business in the Middletown area.  The suspect agreed and the deputy drove to the business locating the suspect parked in his vehicle.  The deputy contacted the suspect, who provided identification with a false name.   He denied any knowledge of the victim or being there to meet her.  The victim was able to positively identify the suspect as the person who had sexually assaulted her.  The suspect eventually admitted knowing the victim, but said he thought she was 18.

Deputies later learned the suspect’s true name was Trevor Noel Reynoso, 31, of Murrieta California, and discovered he had a felony warrant out of Texas for possession of child pornography.  Reynoso was arrested and booked at the Lake County Jail on his Texas warrant and charges of Lewd Acts with a Child, Unlawful Sexual Intercourse with a Minor, Arranging to meet a Minor for Purposes of Sex, Oral Copulation, Soliciting Prostitution from a Minor, False Identification to a Peace Officer, and Furnishing of a Controlled Substance.  Reynoso remains in custody with a no bail hold.
