The child was pulled from the pool by an adult, who immediately began providing life saving measures to the child until Peoria Fire-Medical arrived and took over.

Peoria Police Arrest Man for Child Sex Offenses, Seek Additional Possible Victims On August 30, Peoria Police Department - Arizona Special Victim Detectives arrested 56-year-old Joseph Tejada on multiple counts to include child sex trafficking. A 14-year-old female victim bravely came forward and notified police that a male at the Peoria Library, located at 8463 W. Monroe Street, had approached her, asked her age, and then offered to pay her money for sex. He gave the victim his phone number and the victim went home and reported the incident to an adult, and then the victim contacted the Police. Peoria detectives made contact with the suspect on the phone number he provided. During the text exchange, Tejada agreed to meet the victim at a location in Peoria to engage in sexual intercourse. He was subsequently arrested without incident at the pre-arranged location. Joseph Tejada was later booked into the 4th Avenue Jail on the multiple counts, including; attempted sexual conduct with a minor, attempted sexual exploitation of a minor, luring a minor for sexual exploitation, child sex trafficking and attempted child sex trafficking. We would like to thank the victim in this case for notifying an adult, and we encourage all parents, guardians and caretakers to discuss situations like this with their children.
