1873 - Santa Barbara lawyers Charles Fernald and J.T. Richards purchase Rancho San Francisco for $33,000 (75 cents an acre) in a sheriff's sale [story]


[KHTS] – A Target employee arrested Friday at the Golden Valley store in Santa Clarita is accused of taking photos of a woman in the store’s changing room, officials said.

Online court records indicate the suspect had a previous conviction for a similar offense.

Ricky Alexander Torres, 21, was arrested around 6:45 p.m. Friday in Target on the 19100 block of Golden Valley Road, after the alleged female victim reportedly caught him taking pictures and notified store employees, officials said.

Target employee arrested at Golden Valley store in Santa ClaritaTorres was placed under a citizen’s arrest by the alleged victim, detained by Target loss prevention officers and then booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, according to Sheriff’s Station officials.

Torres was booked on a charge of disorderly conduct, according to Sheriff’s Station officials.

Ricky Alexander Torres has a previous conviction for a violation of Penal Code section 647(A), which is a disorderly conduct charge, on March 20, 2013, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court records. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, according to Sheriff’s Department arrest logs.

The California Penal Code description of 647(A), concerns anyone “who solicits anyone to engage in or who engages in lewd or dissolute conduct in any public place or in any place open to the public or exposed to public view.”

He’s due Monday at Newhall Municipal Court in Valencia, and he’s being held at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station in lieu of $10,000 bail.

No additional information about the prior conviction was available Saturday, according to Jean Guccione, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
