Man arrested on suspicion of attempted rape

 

A 22-year-old man is in custody after a woman reported an attempted rape in unincorporated San Mateo County early Saturday morning, the Sheriff's Office reported.

Deputies arrested Redwood City resident Adrian Gonzalez on suspicion of attempted rape, false imprisonment and sexual battery shortly after 1:10 a.m. near the intersection of El Camino Real and Woodside Road in Redwood City.

The alleged incident occurred at Edison Way and Ninth Avenue in San Mateo County. A woman waved down a Sheriff's Office sergeant near the intersection of First Avenue and Middlefield Road at about 12:30 a.m. The woman told the sergeant that a person attempted to rape her and she provided a description of the person and the vehicle the person was driving.

The sergeant received help from more deputies and one deputy spotted a vehicle matching the description of the vehicle described by the woman. Deputies stopped the vehicle with Mr. Gonzalez inside.

Deputies arrested Gonzalez and booked him into Maguire Jail. Bail for Gonzalez is set at $100,000.

The Sheriff's Office asks that anyone with information about this incident call Detective Jesse Myers at (650) 363-4050 or email him at jrmyers@smcgov.org. Callers can remain anonymous by calling the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office anonymous tip line at (800) 547-2700.
