A Fontana woman was arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing a 6-year-old girl she was babysitting.

Martina Zacarias, 47, was arrested on several counts of sexual abuse of a minor on Wednesday.

In December, Fontana sheriff's deputies received a report about an "inappropriate relationship" involving the girl. After an investigation, detectives took Zacarias into custody from her home in the 8200 block of Cherry Avenue.

She was later arrested and booked into the West Valley Detention Center. Her bail was set at $1.75 million.

Detectives believe there may be other victims. Anyone with information is asked to call the We-Tip Hotline at (800) 78-CRIME (27463).
