Father and son suspected of molesting four children, all family members

A father and son from southwest Riverside County were among three residents arrested Wednesday on suspicion of molesting four children over the last two years, all family members from ages 3 to 10, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

Investigators received multiple reports of possible molestation that allegedly occurred while the family lived in Hemet and more recently San Jacinto.

Arrested were Ronald Hurley Sr., 47, Ronald Hurley Jr., 22, both of San Jacinto, and Monica Silva, 29, of Hemet, also a family member. They were arrested on suspicion of rape, sexual abuse and lewd acts with a child, according to a statement released by Sgt. Steve Mike.

The children, whose identities have not been released, have been turned over to the custody of the county children's protective services agency.

Investigators believe there may be additional victims and ask anyone with knowledge of the case to call (951) 791-3421.
