Press Release

Details: On February 16, 2019, at approximately 9:30 pm, a concerned parent reported their child was walking near the Corcoran High School when they were contacted by a Hispanic male who offered them whiskey and asked the juvenile for sex. The man also grabbed the juvenile’s hand and held onto it for a prolonged period of time, and reportedly pulled the juvenile toward him. Based on the description of the suspect provided by the victim, the suspect was contacted at a bus stop in front of Cost Less Foods.

The suspect was identified as Seferino Arjona Rodarte, 73, of Hollister. A records check revealed Rodarte had an outstanding warrant from the Department of Corrections and he is a convicted sex offender who is out of compliance with his mandated registration.

Rodarte was arrested for annoying/molesting a minor and for the outstanding arrest warrant. Rodarte was booked into the Kings County Jail where he is being held without bail due to the warrant.
