Police sought the public's help today to identify other possible victims of a man suspected of exploiting a foot fetish at a roller staking rink in Northridge.

Christopher Julian Flores, 19, of Granada Hills, has been charged with attempted lewd acts on a minor, but the Sexually Exploited Child Unit of the Los Angeles Police Department's Juvenile Division believes there may be other victims.

The alleged incidents occurred between May 1 and Dec. 21, 2013, at Northridge Skateland, where Flores was an employee, police said.

The Los Angeles Times quoted Flores as saying in a statement to police that he had taken 200 boys into a maintenance room at the rink, had them remove their socks and rub their feet on his face or hands for sexual gratification.

Police found videos of other such encounters on Flores' cellphone and laptop computer, The Times reported.

Flores was charged on Dec. 21 and is free on $150,000 bail. He faces a maximum of eight years and four months in prison if convicted.
