The San Luis Obispo Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect in a sexual assault case involving an alleged juvenile victim.
Since October, detectives with the department have been investigating allegations against Vincente O’Campo, 34, who is believed to be an undocumented immigrant, according to Lieutenant John Bledsoe.
O’Campo is described as a Hispanic male, 5-foot, 8-inches tall, and weighing about 150 pounds, with short black hair and brown eyes.
During the investigation, the alleged victim reported being sexually molested for the past three years by O’Campo, beginning when she was 12 years old. O’Campo was the boyfriend of the victim’s mother and was living in the home with the two for several years.
