On January 27, 2017, at approximately 9:59 AM, the victim’s mother came to the Barstow Police Department to report that her 15-year-old daughter was the victim of a sexual assault. 


Officers interviewed the victim and she reported that she had met an adult male through a bowling league in which she is a member. She told officers that she has known the male for approximately six months. The victim told officers that she invited the adult male to her residence in January 2017.
