CORONA, CA — A Pasadena man is behind bars today on suspicion of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a teenage girl in Riverside County this month.
Andrew San Gabino, 25, is being held at the Robert Presley Detention Center on suspicion of lewd acts with a child, sexual assault of a child and kidnapping following his arrest on Thursday.
