Berks DA seeking Reading man in child sexual assault case

Suspect may have fled area, detectives say

READING, Pa. - A Reading man is being sought on criminal charges in an alleged case of sexual assault involving a 6-year-old girl.

Detectives with the Berks County district attorney's office said Thursday that they're looking to arrest Salomon Garcia-Lopez on two counts of aggravated indecent assault and a single count each of indecent assault and corruption of minors.

Garcia-Lopez, 57, stands accused of having inappropriate contact with the girl inside a city home multiple times between December 2017 and November 2018.

Authorities, who did not provide a photo of Garcia-Lopez, said they have reason to believe he has fled the area.
