Alleged child molester apparently flees

Sheriff’s detectives are searching for a man wanted on multiple child-molestation charges, spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran said.

Authorities issued a $750,000 warrant Monday for Richard Torres, 37.

Torres had made arrangements with detectives to surrender Wednesday but failed to show up. When authorities checked his home in the 7500 block of Cedar Drive, they discovered he had packed his belongings and left.

Torres is described as white, 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information about Torres’ whereabouts is asked to call detectives at (916) 874-5115, or Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
