Sexual Assault on Juveniles


Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Robert Thomas

File # L233390099, L240100024


In December 2023, Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station, Investigations Bureau, and the Special Enforcement Team began investigating a call for service regarding a runaway juvenile. The investigation revealed the suspect, Emilio Ronquillo, a 20-year-old resident of Riverside, assisted the juvenile with running away and harbored the juvenile for two days before returning the victim home. Ronquillo was later arrested and booked into jail for sexual assault against a minor; however, Ronquillo posted bail and was released from custody.

In January 2024, another juvenile victim came forward and disclosed they were a victim of sexual assault by Ronquillo. On February 16, 2024, Ronquillo was arrested and booked into Cois Byrd Detention Center for multiple felony sexual assault charges with a minor and committing a felony while out on bail. This is an ongoing investigation, and no additional details are available at this time.
