A Navy petty officer forced a girl from Porterville to have sex with several men in Lemoore, the Porterville Police Department said Wednesday.
Police identified the man as Charles Ray Benavidez, 32, who is under arrest.
Benavidez, who was stationed at Lemoore Naval Air Station and lives in Lemoore, met the girl, 17, on a social networking site, police said.
The sex started when Benavidez, who was aware that the teen was underage, drove to Porterville and engaged her in a sexual act, according to police.
Before long, Benavidez took the victim to his home in Lemoore and coerced her into having sex with several men in separate encounters, which he videotaped, police said.
