Parents Tackle Man For Taking Pictures At Swim Tournament

ROCKLIN, Calif. (CBS13) – A man has been arrested and charged with possession of child pornography after parents spotted him taking allegedly inappropriate pictures at a kids' swim meet.

Parents at a recent children's championship tournament for the Suburban Swim League allegedly spotted 46-year-old Leandro Encisco using his smart phone to snap photos of childrens' backsides.

"He was doing it from a low angle and from behind swimmers, and if you are familiar with swimming, swimmers are getting ready to race and bend over," said Suburban Swim League representative Mike McIntee.

The Rocklin Police Department said Encisco fled after parents approached him but slipped, allowing bystanders to catch up and hold him down until police arrived.

"Our officers were able to obtain the smart phone and look at some of the photographs taken of the children at the swim meet," said Lt. Ron Milka.

Encisco was booked on charges of possessing child porn of a child under 14 years old and is being held on $30,000 bail.
