      Visalia Police Investigate Accusation of Child Abuse Over Internet

      Visalia Police are waiting to see if more accusers come forward following the arrest of a man, who they say, sexually abused a boy over the internet.

      Police started investigating 49-year-old Israel Villarreal in December.

      That's when they received a report that Villarreal had abused a child over a live video chat phone.

      The investigation led police to North Carolina to track down the boy in question.

      They say the{}boy confirmed the abuse.

      Officers served a warrant at Villarreal's home this week.

      Police believe there could be more accusers.

      You can call Detective Chris Jennings at 559-713-4727.
