RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — Adult performer Mercedes Carrera and adult producer Daemon Cins were arrested Friday on suspicion of committing sexual acts with a young girl.

Carrera and Cins were charged with eight felony counts each of sexually abusing a child under the age of 10. They also face a count of possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine, while armed with several handgun, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

Detectives from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department were first notified of sexual acts against a girl under the age of 10 on Jan. 31. Detectives interviewed the girl, who said she had been assaulted several times, the Sheriff’s Department said.

Officials determined the abuse occurred over four months and included inappropriate touching, oral copulation and digital penetration, the Sheriff’s Department said.

On Friday a search warrant was served at their home, and police uncovered evidence corroborating the girl’s statement.

The couple was denied bail and remain in custody, according to the Sheriff’s Department. They were scheduled to make their first court appearance today.
