Man arrested in Mountain View for rape of 12-year-old he met on dating site

MOUNTAIN VIEW (KRON) - A man has been arrested in Mountain View for inappropriately engaging with a 12-year-old girl he met on an adult dating site, according to the Mountain View Police Department. 

Police are now looking for other victims the man may have engaged with. 

Around 2 a.m. on Monday, officers in Sunnyvale received reports of a 12-year-old girl missing from her home. 

As an investigation began, officials learned the girl was texting a person living on the 500 block of Chesley Court in Mountain View. 

When authorities arrived at the home on Chesley, they ran into a man who was coming back from dropping the girl off near her home. 

The man, identified as 46-year-old Sean Muilenburg, allegedly met the girl on an adult dating site where they exchanged phone numbers. 

Police say Muilenburg picked up the 12-year-old at a park in Sunnyvale and took her to his house where he engaged in non-consensual sexual acts with the girl.

Muilenburg was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail for the rape of a child under 14, and lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14. 

The dating site is not being named at this time. 

Officers are concerned that there may be other victims. If you have any information, you are asked to contact Detective Temo Gonzalez at temo.gonzalez@mountainview.gov.
