Continuous Sexual Abuse of Child Ends with Arrest

Christopher Michael Manzanares

VICTORVILLE — Although 36-year-old Barstow resident Christopher Michael Manzanares was arrested yesterday for lewd acts on a child, apparently the story goes back at least ten years.

The now 14-year-old female victim told her mother that while Manzanares was living them as her mother’s boyfriend, he began  years of inappropriate sexual behavior that started when she was 4 years old.

Her testimony states that Manzanares threatened to harm her and her mother if she told anyone of this activity.

The suspect was arrested on March 6th and is being held on a $1.5 million bond. Detectives believe there may be additional victims.

The SBCSD released this statement – “Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact Detective Dana Weinberg at the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to call the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78CRIME (27463), or you may leave information on the We-Tip website at www.wetip.com.
