SAN MATEO COUNTY (KRON) — Authorities arrested a suspected Millbrae child molester in Utah on Jun. 14, according to Det. Salvador Zuno.
Deputies said 59-year-old Latu Kamisese Lavaki molested at least five girls in Millbrae between 1985 and 2006. The girls were between 6 and 8 years old at the time they were molested, Zuno said.
The investigation started last August, deputies said. On Sunday, Lavaki was extradited from Utah and booked into the San Mateo County Maguire Correctional Facility, according to Zuno.
“The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office has provided these victims with resources to help them through this difficult time. There may be additional victims in the community that have not yet come forward,” Zuno said.
