TURLOCK, CA - An observant priest at a Turlock church was suspicious of a man giving undue attention to two boys from his church and that has led to the arrest of the man for molestation, say police.
Officer Mayra Lewis with the Turlock Police Department said the two alleged victims told the priest that suspect Eduardo Sanchez Arellano, 34, had sexually abused them.
One of the victims spoke to police about the alleged molestation and Arellano was arrested on Dec. 6 on suspicion of sodomy, oral copulation, continual sexual abuse and other child molestation-related charges, Lewis said.
Arellano is from Turlock.
The police investigation has not found where any of the alleged molestation took place at Sacred Heart Church or at any church-sponsored events.
Det. Cristina Magana is investigating the case and urged any other possible victms of Arrellano to contact her at (209) 668-5550, ext. 6627.
