Sac Sheriff's Detectives Seek Additional Victims of Sex Assault Suspect

Suspect Fernando Santos.

Thursday afternoon, Sheriff’s detectives arrested 35 year-old Fernando Santos for charges related to the sexual assault of a teenage girl last year.

Santos was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail for oral copulation and unlawful sexual intercourse with the 17 year-old victim. Santos has since posted bail, and was released from custody.

Santos worked as a personal trainer and kickboxing instructor at a private gym in the Arden-Arcade area of Sacramento County. The 17 year-old victim was a student of his, and is believed to have been assaulted by Santos on several occasions from April of 2011 until January of this year. The victim ultimately reported the assaults, and detectives arrested Santos at his residence based on the victim’s allegations and further investigation.

Due to the nature of Santos’ occupation, and the fact that he had numerous students, detectives believe that there may be additional victims of similar crimes. Anyone who had inappropriate contact with Santos, or having knowledge of unlawful activity on Santos’ part, is asked to call Detective Kelly Clark of the Sheriff’s Sex Assaults Bureau at (916) 874-5070.
