An alleged child predator was arrested in East Palo Alto last Thursday following a criminal investigation, police said Tuesday.

East Palo Alto police first received information in January 2018 about Ramiro Jimenez. Investigators eventually determined that Jimenez had allegedly molested two juvenile victims from 2013 until 2018.

Jimenez was taken into custody on the 1000 block of Newbridge Street without incident. He is now being held in San Mateo County Jail with bail set at $5 million.
