Lakeport man accused of molesting 9-year-old girl

A Lakeport man was arrested on suspicion of molesting a 9-year-old girl, authorities said Friday.

Alfonso Avalos-Chavez, 42, was booked into the Hill Road jail on suspicion of 15 counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 and 10 counts of oral copulation.

Lakeport police said the victim reported being sexually abused by her biological mother's boyfriend after the girl was taken to Sutter Lakeside Hospital last Sunday.

The girl's foster mother brought her to the emergency room, police said.

Police said the alleged abuse occurred over a period of two years.

Bail for Avalos-Chavez was set at $200,000.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Gary Basor at 263-5491.
