A Shasta County man was arrested on Friday because Shasta County Sheriff's deputies say he sexually assaulted two female juveniles.

Investigators say they were advised of two juvenile assault victims saying they had been sexually assaulted by 29 year-old Jason Ryan Johnson who was living in a trailer on Riverland Drive in Redding.

Detectives say further investigation supported the 14 and 15 year old victims' statements and a search warrant was obtained for the home.

Johnson was arrested for penetration with a foreign object, lewd and lascivious act with a child with 10 years age difference and sodomy by force.

Johnson is being held on $325,000 bail at the Shasta County Courthouse and detectives say further charges could be added.
