Alexis Edmundo Garcia, 31, of Murrieta, was arrested last week after allegedly approaching young girls and asking them about their socks. He is being charged with suspicion of child annoyance, contacting a child with the intent to commit a sexual offence and possession of child pornography, police said.
Garcia was arrested Friday after a Murrieta police detective noticed him speaking to a young girl near the Murrieta Boys and Girls Club. The detective’s investigation revealed Garcia has been regularly approaching young women and trying to get them to talk about their socks – leading police to believe he has a sock fetish.
Investigators confirmed that Garcia has approached girls at Murrieta Mesa High School, Shivela Middle School, Rail Ranch Elementary School and Alta Murrieta Elementary School, according to reports.
Police believe there may be additional victims, and are asking anyone with information to call Sgt. Phil Gomez at 951-461-6356 or police dispatch at 951-696-3615.
