A Vista man is in custody for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old girl San Dieguito Academy student.
Last week, the teen said she was snatched off an Encinitas street, forced into a car, then sexually assaulted by three Latino suspects, who drove around for an hour before pushing her out of the vehicle near the site of her alleged kidnapping.
She later admitted she had lied and had consensual sex with a man she met on the Internet.
Jose Adrian Cano, 20, was arrested Tuesday and is facing several charges, including contacting a minor online with the intent to commit a sex crime, a lewd act with 15-year-old and unlawful intercourse with a minor. He is being held on $20,000 bail.
Authorities say evidence they gathered during the investigation has led them to believe there may be other underage victims out there.
Cano is being held at the Vista detention center and will be arraigned Thursday.
