Girls Soccer Coach Arrested on Suspicion of Lewd Acts With Minor

Police believe the man may have committed acts with other victims and ask for the public's help.

A 50-year-old El Segundo girls soccer coach -- who was arrested on suspicion of committing lewd acts with a minor -- was free on bail Wednesday.

David Tinoco was arrested Monday at Recreation Park in El Segundo after agreeing to meet with the 15-year-old girl, said El Segundo police Lt. Raymond Garcia.

"Based on his demeanor and ease in which he attempted to manipulate the victim, investigators believe Tinoco may have committed similar acts with other teenage girls," Garcia said.

Tinoco was released from jail Tuesday after posting $100,000 bail, according to sheriff's online booking records.

Anyone who suspects Tinoco may have committed similar acts with others was urged to call El Segundo police Detective Jeff Humphrey at (310) 524-2284 or email him at jhumphrey@elsegundo.org.
