PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) - Police captured a registered sex offender living in Norfolk Monday who was wanted on sexual battery charges with three young girls.
Around 4 p.m., U.S. Marshals in California took 62-year-old Ronnie Foreman into custody without incident after law enforcement received information that he was staying in a hotel in Sacramento, according to Jan Clark with the Portsmouth Police Department.
Clark said a Portsmouth family let Foreman of the 700 block of Round Bay Road in Norfolk care for their three young girls on several occasions in February and March 2013.
The girls were aged 7, 8 and 12. Their parents were not aware of Foreman's past nor the fact that he is a sex offender.
Foreman was wanted on charges of aggravated sexual battery and indecent liberties following an investigation led by SVU detectives and Child Protective Services.
He will be held in California until he appears before a judge for an extradition hearing.
