SAN DIEGO — A 22-year-old man was behind bars Wednesday for allegedly attacking a teenage acquaintance and raping her on the grounds of a University City apartment complex.
“She yelled for help, and a nearby security guard called police,” SDPD Lt. Chuck Kaye said.
When patrol officers arrived, the suspect ran off, the lieutenant said. They caught and arrested him following a brief foot chase.
Rojas was booked into San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of forcible rape, sexually assaulting a minor, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and resisting arrest. He was being held without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Friday afternoon.
Kaye declined to release the alleged victim’s age.
