BANNING (CBS) — A Banning man is accused of performing sex acts on a 2-year-old relative, according to authorities.

Antonio Peralta Garcia, 47, could face 15 years in prison if convicted of the felonies.

He was charged today with attempted oral copulation of a child under 10 years old and lewd acts on a minor.

Garcia, who remains held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility, is slated to be arraigned this afternoon at the Banning Courthouse.

According to Banning police, around 2 p.m. Monday, officers were summoned to an apartment in the 700 block of West Nicolet Street to investigate sexual molestation allegations.

“The victim’s mother came home and found the suspect … committing a sexual act on the 2-year-old,” according to a police statement. “Garcia left the apartment after being confronted by the mother.”

He was located three blocks away, at 671 W. Ramsey St., where he was taken into custody without incident.

    Oh my gosh, this makes me sick! My stomach is turning at the thought of what this monster did to that little girl! There isn’t a tough enough sentence or punishment that would do this kind of sick, twisted, and monstrous act justice. Hopefully the little girl is young enough that she may not remember what happened to her. This guy should be shot on the spot!

      Shall I suggest the spot upon which he should be shot?

    A single bullet right between the eyes will cure the perverts problem, thats my choice for the cure.

      His homie of those two FPD cops, would cover him come on.

      These people are notorious for looking the other way.

  8. sad says:

    I can’t believe that he may only get 15 years…should be alot longer. Poor baby + mom, hopefully they can recover from this. This guy is truly demented. Throw the book at him.

  9. KrissyinLA says:

    15 years is all he will get for that??? A guy robs a convinience store and gets more time than this…. People like this need to be put on an island away from the general public and have medical experiments preformed upon them instead of using animals. Just a thought!
