A Mesa man was arrested Monday morning on 18 counts of sexual conduct with several children, including a 5-year-old girl, police said.

Miguel Figueroa was booked into jail on two other charges as well - sexual abuse and transmitting obscene material.

Investigators said two other children, a 9-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl, were forced into engaging in sex acts.

The children claimed Figueroa told them he would kill them if they reported the incidents, according to a probable cause statement.

The alleged incidents occurred over a five-year period, court paperwork stated.
