David ElliotOn Thursday, October 1, 2015, Mountain View Police Detectives arrested David Norman Elliott, a 59 year old Mountain View resident, for Lewd and Lascivious Acts on a Child (California Penal Code 288(b)(1)).

The victim’s mother contacted MVPD after learning about inappropriate behavior between her 12 year old son and Elliott. Based on the subsequent investigation David Elliott was arrested and booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail where he remains in custody.

David Elliott has been a foster parent in Santa Clara County for the past 5 years and we are looking for any additional victims that may have been in contact with him throughout that time. Please contact Det. Marco Garcia at 650-903-6395 and refer to case number 15-5889.

The safety of you and your family is of the utmost importance. Communication with your child is critical. Listen to them, ask questions and be involved with their day-to-day interactions. If you believe your child may be the victim of physical and/or sexual abuse, it is imperative that you contact the police right away.
