NORTH LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — North Las Vegas Police are searching for possible victims of an accused sexual predator.
On May 19, 24-year-old Jesse Huerta was arrested. He is facing the following charges:
- Kidnapping (x2)
- Sexual assault (x3)
- Child abuse
- Domestic battery by strangulation
- Battery with intent to commit sexual assault
- Convicted felon in possession of a firearm
- Coercion by force
Police say they were told by a victim that Huerta was parked in front of her work and forced her into his car when she came out. He reportedly told her he would kill her and her family if she did not comply.
The victim was then sexually assaulted, beaten and strangled to the point of losing consciousness.
After further investigation, it was revealed Huerta was previously arrested by Metro police in the past for similar charges. Due to that, investigators believe there may be more victims.
