EL SEGUNDO (CBS) — An El Segundo girls soccer coach, who was arrested on suspicion of committing lewd acts with a minor, is expected to appear in a Los Angeles court Wednesday.

David Tinoco was arrested Monday at Recreation Park in El Segundo after agreeing to meet with the 15-year-old female victim, said El Segundo police Lt. Raymond Garcia.

An investigation revealed Tinoco had been a soccer coach for teenage girls and that his job put him in direct contact with other juveniles, Garcia said.

“Based on his demeanor and ease in which he attempted to manipulate the victim, investigators believe Tinoco may have committed similar acts with other teenage girls,” he said.

Tinoco posted $100,000 bail on Tuesday, according to sheriff’s online booking records.

Anyone who suspects Tinoco may have committed similar acts with others was urged to call El Segundo police Detective Jeff Humphrey at (310) 524-2284 or email him at jhumphrey@elsegundo.org.
