Cops say a 27-year-old man participated in “illicit sexual acts” with a number of underage girls.

And the victims were his own relatives.

That's what an LAPD detective told us about Melvin Ramos, who's being hunted by the department as we speak:

Police this week released the photo of Ramos you see here in hopes that someone might turn him in.

According to cops, the South L.A. man allegedly molested young, female family members: “Multiple victims were sexually assaulted,” a detective told the Weekly.

Investigators from the 77th Street Division were on the lookout for Ramos. They're not sure if he has fled, but they do know that his family informed him they were bringing the allegations to police.

And now they can't find him.

Ramos is described as 5 feet, 9 inches, 150 pounds with a scar on his left eyebrow. Seen him? Call detectives at 213-473-4807.
