Roseville Police officers have arrested a 27-year-old Roseville man after he allegedly passed a note to a 15-year-old boy, offering to pay him for a sexual act.
On Tuesday afternoon, March 9, the teenager was exiting a city transit bus in Roseville, when an adult male passenger handed him a note. The note contained a cell phone number and an offer to pay cash for a sexual act. Later, the boy gave the note to his mother and told her what had happened. The mother notified Roseville Police.
Posing as the underage male bus passenger, a detective sent text messages to the suspect’s cell phone and made arrangements to meet with the suspect to exchange sex for money. On Saturday, March 13, officers met and arrested the suspect, Nery Fer Alvizuris, 27, of Roseville, on suspicion of contacting a minor with the intent to commit a sex crime. He is currently being held in the Placer County Jail on $100,000 bail.
This incident highlights the need for open communications between children and their parents or other trusted adults. The teenager in this incident did the right thing by promptly telling his mother about the suspicious person and note. His mother also did the right thing by immediately notifying police, helping protect not only her son, but other potential victims.
