RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Reno Police have arrested a 58-year-old man accused of sexual assault.

In March 2018, a woman who is now 21 reported she had been sexually assaulted multiple times between the ages of 12 and 16. She said that sometime around 2009, she was introduced to Sergio Amones through a mutual friend. She says Amones began providing her with money, marijuana and rides to and from various places. Police say Amones continued this "grooming" behavior, which eventually evolved to sexually assaulting her on more than one occasion.

Police say Amones was tracked and contacted May 16, 2018 and admitted to the crimes.

Reno Police say they believe there may be more victims. Anyone with information regarding Amones and/or other possible victims is asked to call the Reno Police Department at 775-657-4601 or Secret Witness at 775-322-4900.
