A youth counselor has been arrested for alleged lewd acts with a 15-year-old boy he met on an online dating site called "Jake-d". San Bernardino County sheriff's investigators believe there may be more victims.

Ameer Bradley, 28, of Fontana was arrested Sunday at a park in the 22700 block of De Berry Street in Grand Terrace after a sheriff's deputy spotted him in a vehicle with the teen engaging in a sexual act.

Bradley is a youth counselor at Star Shine Treatment Center in San Bernardino and Trinity Youth Outreach in Yucaipa.

"During a consent search of the suspect's phone, detectives did locate additional nude photos, what they believe to be juvenile victims," said Jodi Miller of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

Bradley was arrested and booked into Central Detention Center on charges of unlawful sex crimes with a minor. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 and is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.

Anyone with further information or who may have been victimized by Bradley was urged to contact the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Crime Against Children Unit at (909) 387-3615 or (909) 387-3545.
