Sacramento PD arrests man, 57, arrested in sexual assault of teen

From Julie Johnson

The Sacramento Police Department on Saturday arrested a 57-year-old man for allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy near the 3200 block of Florin Road.

Joseph Chapa was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of charges related to lewd acts with a child, according to online jail records.

The boy's mother called police just after 11 a.m. Saturday to report the assault, according to Sgt. Norm Leong, spokesman for the Police Department.

"We believe Mr. Chapa was known to (the victim) but not related to him," Leong said.

Police are also investigating at least one other similar complaint about Chapa, according to Leong.
