A man and woman were arrested last week for allegedly sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl they were babysitting in Sunnyvale, a department spokesman said today.

Blanca Torres and Hector Garcia, both 39, were arrested Thursday for the alleged assault of the young girl, according to Capt. Shawn Ahearn.

A search of Torres' cellphone also revealed browser searches for child pornography, public safety officials said.

Torres has previously shared residences with other families and may have offered babysitting services to other families in the region, but so far investigators have not found any other victims, Ahearn said.

Anyone who may have additional information about the case is asked to contact Detective DiGiovanna at (408) 730-7297.
