SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities say a San Diego police sergeant has been arrested on suspicion of soliciting a minor for sex.
The Union-Tribune reports Sgt. Joseph Ruvido was arrested Friday night following an investigation. It wasn’t known Sunday if the 49-year-old has an attorney.
The newspaper says the precise charge he was arrested under accuses him of arranging a meeting with a minor — or someone believed to be a minor — for sexual purposes, and then showing up at the arranged place and time.
The 21-year police veteran has been suspended without pay.
