A registered sex offender was arrested Tuesday morning after police say he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old boy last week.

According to a press release from the Sonora Police Department, Anthony

Steven Canzoni, 51, of the 100 block of Calaveras Way, spent the night

at a friend's house in Sonora on June 7. Police allege that during the

night he sexually assaulted his friend's 12-year-old son two times.

The victim's parents contacted the Sonora Police Department after they

learned about the assault and Canzoni was arrested at his house without

incident, according to police.

Canzoni was booked at the Tuolumne County Jail on suspicion of two felony

counts including lewd and lecivious acts with a child under 14 years old.
