A 61-year-old church youth leader from Azusa was arrested after being accused of sexual battery of a 16-year-old in Angelus Oaks, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department announced Monday, July 18.
An inappropriate relationship between Marciano Cuellar and a minor was investigated by the Sheriff’s Department on Sunday, July 12, authorities said in a news release. On Friday, July 15, Cuellar was arrested on suspicion of sexual battery of a minor victim, sheriff’s officials said.
It wasn’t immediately clear when the suspected battery took place, but Cuellar was involved with a church in Glendora, according to Mara Rodriguez, spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Department. He had regular contact with minors, so investigators believe there may be additional victims, authorities said.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Deputy D. Brandt at 909-918-2305.
