You Can All Rest Easy: Wonder Woman is Good
Police arrested a 61-year-old man on sexual assault charges shortly before 3:00 a.m. Wednesday in a residence near the 5800 block of Hamner Avenue in Jurupa Valley, a Sheriff’s official reported today.
Ruben Mendez was arrested for multiple felony sexual assault-related charges and also for violating terms set down to him as a registered sex offender, according to a Riverside County sheriff’s report.
Police responded to Mendez’s residence after first going to a residence on Hamner Avenue as part of their investigation into the alleged assault.
“After the officers ensured the safety of the victim, they located the suspect (Hamner) a short time later, in a nearby residence,” Sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Manning said in his report.
After officers took Mendez into custody, investigators assigned to the City of Eastvale determined Mendez had sexually assaulted his victim during daytime hours, according to Manning.
Mendez was booked at Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside.
