WATSONVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Police say they have arrested a 23-year-old woman on suspicion of having sex with a 13-year-old boy.
Police arrested Yazmin Reyes Ruiz after investigating claims by the boy's mother, who told investigators she noticed suspicious marks on his neck.
Ruiz is being held on $25,000 bail in Santa Cruz County jail on suspicion of having sexual intercourse with a minor more than 10 years her junior and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Police say Ruiz moved in with the boy's family over the summer. The mother notified Child Protective Services after noticing the marks and police investigated for nearly a month before arresting Ruiz.
