Santa Barbara Police say a man who admitted molesting a five year old girl told detectives it was payback for when he was molested as a child.

Investigators say police were called to a home on Santa Barbara’s Eastside Sunday after the victim, who was visiting the house, told an older cousin what had happened to her.

Family members tried to confront Jose Vasquez Prestegui, but the 40 year old man, who also lived in the home, fled the scene.
Police found him a short time later near the home, and arrested him for committing a lewd act on a child.
