A Fresno man was in jail Wednesday after allegedly soliciting minors online for sexual acts, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office said.
The sheriff’s office launched an investigation last week after receiving a report of suspicious activity on a public website, sheriff’s spokesman Tony Botti said. The investigation led to 44-year-old Michael Cancino, who agreed to meet “a mother and her 10-year-old daughter” Tuesday to engage in sexual acts with the child. Authorities were waiting at the meeting spot and arrested Cancino, who was booked on multiple felony counts.
Deputies searched Cancino’s apartment on Millbrook Avenue north of Shields Avenue and collected electronic devices that are being examined by investigators.
