    Shane Shuyler, 40, was arrested on three counts of lewd or lascivious exhibition on a child and one count of lewd and lascivious conduct on a child after he approached Meline Matute's 3-year-old girl at a playground. Matute recounts what happened.

    Authorities said Columna had sex with the young girl on at least two occasions at his home. The girl told officials she would skip school and Columna would pick her up, a report said.

    Columna was arrested after officials recorded a call with the victim, where she asked Columna whether he used protection during their last sexual encounter, authorities said.
