Police said an unlicensed food vendor is accused of sexually assaulting a juvenile girl at least twice during the last three years.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, Everardo Mata-Zuniga, 53, was arrested on Aug. 16 and charged with two counts of sexual assault of a victim under 14 years old.

Detectives investigating the crime believe Mata-Zuniga would show his victim pornographic movies before assaulting her. Police placed the timing of those assaults between 2010 and 2013.

Police also noted the food vender sold items from a bicycle cart in a number of apartment complexes and parks in the area of Pennwood Avenue and Arville Street in west Las Vegas.

Police said it is believed he may have assaulted additional victims during this time.

Metro described Mata-Zuniga as a Hispanic man, about 5'5" and about 175 pounds. Police said he has black and gray hair and brown eyes.

Detectives urged anyone with information on possible additional victims to contact Metro's Sexual Assault Section at 702-828-3421 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
