Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A man has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a female juvenile.

On Jan. 9, detectives began an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct involving a minor. As a result of the investigation, detectives arrested 44-year-old Eriberto Galdamez.

The investigation revealed Galdamez met the victim while attending a local church, then later friended her through social media.

Detectives believe Galdamez was on contact with the victim for several months before sexually assaulting her in January.

Galdamez is currently housed at the Clark County Detention Center where he was booked for two counts of lewdness with a child under 14, and sexual assault of a child under 16.

Detectives are asking anyone who has any information concerning possible additional victim of Galdamez, to contact Metro's Sexual Assault Section at (702) 828-3421.
