Joseph Reyes Rogero, 24, of Van Nuys was charged Thursday with 18 felony counts, including lewd acts on a child, kidnapping and impersonating a public officer, the district attorney's office told the Los Angeles Times.
Police said Rogero flashed a fake police badge and approached the girls, ages 12 to 15, near Ernest Lawrence Middle School in Chatsworth.
Rogero, a fighter and trainer at the M-1 Global gym in Chatsworth, is being held in lieu of $5.5 million bail. Police say he may have more victims.
