SANTA CLARA COUNTY, Calif. -- (KRON) -- Sheriff’s deputies in Santa Clara County have arrested a man accused of stalking at least 19 girls, authorities said.
Thirty-five-year-old Rajeev Sanhi allegedly stalked and “annoyed” four under-aged girls on Wednesday alone, deputies said.
Detectives say he’s believed to have stalked at least 19 girls over the course of several years.
The investigation started when a 14-year-old girl said she was repeatedly approached by Sanhi.
Victims, like the 14-year-old, told police they were also offered gifts like money and movie tickets, among other items.
The 14-year-old girl said Sanhi followed her home more than a dozen times.
A family member of the victim confronted Sanhi about his behavior, but he continued to stalk her, authorities said.
“Sheriff’s Office detectives initiated an investigation and learned that Sanhi had numerous prior encounters with law enforcement documenting similar circumstances. In late February, Sanhi was positively identified as having participated in similar type activities in the cities of Saratoga, Los Altos, San Jose, Los Gatos & the Los Angeles area,” Lt. James Jensen said.
