Menlo Park man, 27, charged with rape of 15-year-old girl


Isaac Adam Rodriguez, 27, of Menlo Park, pleaded not guilty Friday, Sept. 18, to six felony charges relating to the alleged rape of a 15-year-old girl, according to Steve Wagstaffe, San Mateo County district attorney.

The girl reported the incident to police Sept. 14, within hours of the alleged rape on the night of Sept. 13. Mr. Rodriguez was arrested Sept. 17 after a police investigation, Mr. Wagstaffe said.

The two first met at McDonald's in Menlo Park before Mr. Rodriguez invited the girl to his home, where the incident allegedly occurred, Mr. Wagstaffe said.

Mr. Rodriguez faces three counts of unlawful sexual intercourse with a victim under 16, one count of oral copulation with a person under 16, one of penetration of a victim and one of rape of an unconscious victim.

Has anyone else noticed what a hang out that MP location McDonalds has become? My neighbor's 18 year old daughter said she was solicited there last week, I urged her to report it. Many questionable characters go there to sit for hours, probably out of the heat and for a cheap cup of coffee. Can police patrol there more often?
