Fontana – In April 2015, multiple female victims who were suspected of being sexually abused as minors notified Deputies at the Fontana Sheriff’s Station.  Deputies were advised that the suspect was known to the victims, and immediately began an investigation.

According to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, it was discovered that the victims had been sexually abused on several occasions and at multiple locations – including their family home – over a span of at least ten years.

After an extensive investigation, Detectives identified Jose Manuel Carrillo, 48, as the suspect.  During the course of the investigation, Detectives discovered additional victims who came forward.  An arrest warrant was secured for Carrillo’s arrest while Detectives conducted a surveillance of his residence located in the 14800 block of Merrill Ave. in Fontana.

Carrillo was subsequently taken into custody, interviewed and arrested.  He was booked into the West Valley Detention Center for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child, and is being held on a no-bail warrant.

Detectives are concerned they may be additional victims.  Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Fontana Sheriff’s Station at (909) 356-6767.  Callers wishing to remain anonymous may contact the We-Tip Hotline at (800) 78-CRIME (27463) or you may leave information on the We-Tip website at
