Fontana Man Was Arrested for Attempting to Meet Preteen Girls for Sex
RANCHO CUCAMONGA – A 31-year-old man was arrested for allegedly seeking out young girls in order to send him photographs and meet him for sex.
The investigation began on April 5, 2018, when the Fontana Police Department received a tip via WE-TIP from Scotland. Matthew Olivia, of Fontana, was allegedly attempting to correspond with the reporting party’s young daughter via Facebook. As part of the investigation detectives posed as two, 12-year-old girls. Olivia was determined to be the person who was seeking the young girls after he agreed to meet the two detectives posing as preteen girls at Beryl Park in the City of Rancho Cucamonga.
On Tuesday, July 31, 2018, at around 10:40 a.m. Oliva arrived at the park to meet the girls and was met by Fontana Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) team along with the FPD’s Fugitive Apprehension Team (FAT). Olivia was taken into custody after a brief struggle and was subsequently interviewed by detectives. The investigation is ongoing to determine if Oliva has victimized anyone else. Oliva will be transported to the West Valley Detention Center and booked on several felony counts.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Fontana Police Department’s Investigation Unit at (909) 350-7720.
