Facebook Posting Tips Police Off To Child Abuse Case In Ventura County

Posted on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 1:49pm


A Facebook posting tipped police off to a child abuse case in Ventura County, and the arrest of a San Fernando Valley man.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children notified Simi Valley Police last month about a pornographic image of a child posted on a Facebook account.  Detectives say that led them to Philip Schwarz, a Canoga Park man who had been living in Simi Valley.

Investigators obtained a search warrant, and say the 41 year old man confessed to molesting a young relative, as well as to possessing child pornography.
