Carlsbad police said 22-year-old Samuel Cabrera Jr. (left) and 22-year-old Brittney Lyon (right) were both arrested on charges of lewd and lascivious acts on children.

A babysitter who allegedly aided in the molestation of children in Carlsbad may have more victims in Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino, according to authorities.

Carlsbad police said 22-year-old Brittney Lyon, who also went by the alias Lauren Allen, would target children using babysitting websites such as care.com, sitter.com and sittercity.com.

Detectives said Lyon, of Escondido, would take children that she was babysitting to a home in the 6300 block of Greenhaven Drive in Carlsbad where her boyfriend, 22-year-old Samuel Cabrera Jr., lived.

Officials said Cabrera would sexually molest the children while Lyon filmed the acts.

Investigators said they found two victims, both 7-year-old girls, one from Oceanside and one from Escondido.

While Lyon and Cabrera were arrested on July 5, 2016, detectives said their investigation has led them to believe there may be more victims, including in Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino.

Officials have asked anyone who believes they may have used Lyon's babysitting services, or her services under her alias, to contact Det. Scott Stallman with the Carlsbad Police Department at (760) 931-2293 or scott.stallman@carlsbadca.gov.
