Firebaugh in shock after Boys & Girls Club arrest
FIREBAUGH, Calif. (KFSN) -- The community of Firebaugh is in shock after learning of alleged inappropriate behavior from the leader of a youth organization.
Juan Torres, 25, was arrested on federal charges of attempted enticement of a minor to engage in an illegal sexual act.
The doors to the Boys & Girls Club in Firebaugh remained closed Thursday afternoon.
The investigation into the club's director began last week, when a 13 year old contacted Firebaugh police to report unwanted messages from Torres via social media.
Neighbors in this small knit community say they can't believe the accusations.
"I've known him for quite some years already, so this is really a shock to us," said Rosa Gonzalez. "We don't want to believe that it's true. We're hoping it's just a misunderstanding."
Investigators believe more victims may come forward. If you have any information on this case, you're asked to call the Fresno County Sheriff's Office.
