Santa Cruz police have arrested a 42-year-old man on child molestation charges.

David Escobar of Scotts Valley was taken into custody Wednesday. Parents of a 14-year-old girl alerted police about possible inappropriate contact between her and Escobar.

Investigators are trying to find out if there are any additional local victims.
