(The AEGIS Alliance) – RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA – A man from Colton, California has been arrested and is accused of contacting who he believed to be an underage girl online, but was actually an investigator with the Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement and Internet Crimes Against Children task force, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office said according to Fontana Herald News.
Investigators say 25-year-old Ruben Aguilera used an online dating app on July 7 to send an unsolicited message to an undercover District Attorney investigator.

Ruben Aguilera showed up to a location agreed upon in the online dating app messages, but upon his arrival, he was confronted by authorities and was then arrested and booked into jail. Aguilera is now facing various felony criminal charges.
