A Lompoc man suspected of committing multiple incidents of child molestation was arrested early Thursday, according to the Lompoc Police Department.

Armed with a warrant, detectives arrested the suspect in the 100 block of South O Street after stopping his vehicle and taking him into custody without incident, police said.

The suspect, Keith Wendall Mack, 56, was arrested on suspicion of lewd or lascivious acts with a child, oral copulation with a victim under 14 years of age, and penetration with a foreign object involving a victim under 14 years of age, police said.

Mack was booked into the Lompoc City Jail with bail set at $100,000.

Detectives are seeking persons who might have further information concerning the allegations against Mack.

Anyone with relevant information can contact Lompoc Detective David Lamar at 805.875.8124.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
