CORONA - A 43-year-old Corona man suspected of sexually abusing multiple girls was behind bars today.

Paul Ronald Iturzaeta was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of rape of a minor under the influence of drugs or alcohol, statutory rape, sodomy and other sex-related allegations.

According to Corona police, officers were alerted on December 5 to a possible inappropriate relationship between Iturzaeta and a 15-year-old girl. The ensuing investigation revealed that the suspect was allegedly having sex with the minor and her 17-year-old sister -- the latter for at least two years, police said.

Detectives went looking for the five-foot-two, 100-pound man and located him in a room at the Holiday Inn Express off Interstate 15 and Advertisement

Circle City Drive in Corona.

"At the time of his arrest, he was in the company of his 16-year-old daughter and two additional female minors," according to a Corona police statement.

Iturzaeta was arrested without incident and booked into the Robert Presley Jail in Riverside, where he's being held in lieu of $500,000 bail.

According to Riverside County court records, Iturzaeta was convicted in April 2009 of misdemeanor disturbing the peace, to which he pleaded guilty as part of a pretrial settlement with the District Attorney's Office.

He had originally been charged with annoying or molesting a minor. Corona police said the case stemmed from contact the suspect had with a 13-year- old girl in May 2008.
