Authorities Wednesday urged other possible victims of a man charged with sexually assaulting three children at a dollar store in Sylmar where he worked to contact detectives.

Enrique Ramirez, 60, was arrested July 26 and booked on suspicion of sexual assault involving children under 12 years old, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.

Police said Ramirez, who's being held on $1.8 million bail, worked at the American Dollar Plus store at 12737 Glenoaks Blvd., where the crimes allegedly occurred.

"On July 17 ... a victim made a police report which indicated Enrique Ramirez sexually assaulted him several times," according to an LAPD statement.

Three days later, another boy contacted police and alleged that Ramirez "continually sexually assaulted him over a 10-month period at ... American Dollar Plus," police said.

Detectives served a warrant at the store on July 26 and arrested Ramirez.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office filed three felony counts against Ramirez, police said.
