SANTA CLARA COUNTY — The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office has announced the arrest of 35 year-old Rajeev Sanhi of Cupertino for the stalking and “annoying” of four underage girls.
It is also believed that there may be numerous victims. It is alleged that he had followed and harassed a 14-year-old victim for more than a dozen times near her home.
When confronted by the victims’ parents, Sanhi continued to stalk the girl despite warnings to stop by the parents.
According to Santa Clara County Lt. James Jensen with the Santa Clara County sheriff’s Office, “On March 8, the Sheriff’s Office Sexual Assault Investigation Unit, SAFE Task Force, and a Los Altos Police Department detectives served a search warrant at Sanhi’s residence.”
While at the residence, evidence of collages of the underage victims, gifts for the victims and even a personalized license plate for a victim was found.
After being questioned by investigators, Sanhi was subsequently arrested on multiple charges of annoying a minor. Jensen said, “At least 19 minors have been identified as victims of Sanhi occurring over the course of several years.”
When following several female victims he would often introduce himself by given his victims a business card. Sgt. Jensen said, “The card referenced his website, jcmakeover.com.” The website refers to several books the suspect is writing.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information about Sanhi or this investigation to contact the Sheriff’s Detective Bureau at (408) 808-4500.
