Simi Valley man arrested for lewd acts with 12-year-old child
SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (KABC) -- A community group volunteer from Simi Valley has been arrested for committing lewd acts with a 12-year-old-child.
Donald Alan Tuthill, 43, was arrested Thursday at his residence in the 6000 block of Sylvan Drive around 2:11 p.m. According to authorities, Tuthill inappropriately touched a 12-year-old juvenile while the victim was spending the night at his home.
Authorities believe there could be other possible victims since Tuthill had easy access to children through his volunteer work with several community groups.
Tuthill is being held at the Ventura County Pre-Trial Detention Facility on $100,000 bail.
Anyone with information on the case or the suspect was urged to contact the Sheriff's East County Sexual Assault Unit at (805) 494-8201.
