A Salinas boxing coach arrested yesterday faces numerous charges of child molestation.
A 14-year-old female boxing student reported to Salinas police that Daniel Lujan, 66, would regularly massage her with Albumin—a cream to help loosen muscles—but would also rub her buttocks and breasts.
The victim told police that Lujan had repeatedly tried to touch her crotch area as well and disclosed that Lujan told her he wanted to have a sexual relationship with her. The touching, she said, took place over a span of a few years.
Salinas police officers asked Lujan to come to the department for an interview and he was arrested without incident afterwards.
A date has yet to be set for his arraignment. He faces numbers charges of sexual assault on a child.
