Authorities in Orange County on Monday night were looking for possible victims of a soccer referee arrested on suspicion of molesting two teenage boys.

Jorge Serafin, 30, was a referee in the Oak View Soccer League in Huntington Beach and allegedly molested two 16-year-olds, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Serafin lives in unincorporated Anaheim. 

Neither of the youths are members of the soccer league. They contacted authorities, saying they were molested in the last two months, the Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

Serafin was taken into custody Friday.

Authorities said there may be additional victims in the Anaheim and Huntington Beach areas. Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at (714) 647-7000.
