Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Las Vegas man has been arrested in connection with the sexual assault of a juvenile female.

On Aug. 16, Las Vegas police detectives arrested 53-year-old Everardo Mata-Zuniga on two counts of sexual assault of a victim under 14-years-old.

The two incidents which resulted in these charges occurred between 2010 and 2013. During these crimes, police said he showed the victim pornographic movies before assaulting her.

Detectives learned Mata-Zuniga has been working for several years as an unlicensed food vendor, selling food from a bicycle cart in numerous apartment complexes and parks in the area of Pennwood Avenue and Arville Street.

It is believed the suspect may have assaulted additional victims during this time.

Detectives are asking anyone who has any information concerning possible additional victims of Mata-Zuniga to contact Metro's Sexual Assault Section at (702) 828-3421.
