SACRAMENTO, CA – A man in California is accused of posing as a young girl online in order to lure as many as 80 or more children – many between the ages of 6 and 13 – into making pornographic videos, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities say that Demetrius Carl Davis, 24, was arrested after an investigation uncovered he had allegedly groomed over 80 kids since late 2020 into performing sex acts that he would record and save on his cell phone and computer.

Davis is purported to have adopted an online alter-ego named “Lizzy” in order to establish internet communication via social media with young children, where he would encourage them to engage in sex acts with their friends or relatives, which they were instructed to record and then send to the suspect, Sgt. Rod Grassmann said.

“What’s particularly heinous about this is that this grooming led up to our suspect asking these children to perform sexual acts on their siblings, other relatives and other kids that they know and film it and then send that video to our suspect,” he said, noting that Davis may have allegedly contacted as many as 100 different kids, both throughout the United States and internationally.

Grassmann noted that authorities were first tipped off on Davis’ behavior in December, when they executed a search warrant at his home; however, at that time, sufficient evidence did not exist to lead to an arrest, although several electronic devices containing sexual content were seized.

“At that time, we did not have enough evidence to arrest him on site, but we took all those electronics,” Grassmann said. “Over the last several months, we have forensically analyzed all of those and have identified 80 different victims and an additional 15 to 20 internationally, which we have not identified yet.”

Davis was arrested on suspicion of committing lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14.
