Social media personality Ray Diaz arrested on sexual assault charges

Social media personality Ray Diaz has been arrested for sexual assault, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed on Twitter.

The 33-year-old social media influencer was taken into custody in San Diego on Friday after an investigation by LAPD's Special Assault Section looked into several social media posts that surfaced alleging Diaz physically abused and had sexual relations with a girl under the age of 18.

LAPD Chief Michel Moore tweeted:

"We thank the public for their outpouring of concern regarding this case. We are better when we share the responsibility of making sure every member of our community is safe."

Diaz has appeared on shows such as TV Land's "Lopez" and Hulu's "East Los High." His bail was set at $500,000.
