Sexual abuse allegations by a Rosemead wrestling coach involving a male 14-year old victim are under investigation by Special Victims Bureau detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The suspect in this case is WANTED for sexual assault of a minor.

At the start of the incidents, the victim was allegedly befriended by the suspect who was an assistant wrestling coach for Rosemead High School from 2007 to 2009.

Since 2010 to the present time, he has been employed as a wrestling instructor of the Bad News Panthers Children Wrestling Club in Rosemead.

The suspect is Herbert Daniel Ortiz. He is also known as (AKA) Herbert Ortiz Monroy, a 29-year old Hispanic male, 5'8, 160 lbs.

His last known residence was in Baldwin Park. The sexual abuse allegations were disclosed by the victim to his mother.

Investigators were told of the alleged abuse by a victim's mother. She said she had been alerted to a "Youtube" video on the internet. In the video, another male alleged he was victimized by the suspect and was warning viewers, specifically those residing in Rosemead, California, to protect their children. The mother recognized the suspect as a former assistant wresting coach at Rosemead High School and asked her 14-year old son if he had been a victim. Her son then disclosed the sexual abuse by the suspect. The crimes occurred in the cities of Rosemead, El Monte and Baldwin Park.

During follow-up investigation, detectives learned that the suspect had knowledge that the "Youtube" video had been posted to the internet.

Sheriff's Special Victims Bureau detectives have been unable to locate the suspect and it is believed the suspect is intentionally eluding detectives due to the alleged offenses.

I n v e s t i g a t o r s believe there may be additional victims who may have been sexually abused by the suspect.

The suspect is wanted. If you see the suspect call 9- 1-1.
