SAN DIEGO — A 32-year-old man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly raping and torturing a woman a day earlier in Rancho Peñasquitos.
Officers were called about 10:45 a.m. Monday to the 9800 block of Caminito Bolsa to investigate a report of a kidnapping, according to San Diego Police Department Lt. Carole Beason.
They located a woman who had reported being kidnapped and held against her will in a neighborhood near Black Mountain Open Space Park and obtained a preliminary statement, Beason said.
The woman was eventually taken to a department substation where detectives with the Sex Crimes Unit conducted a more detailed interview, according to the lieutenant.
“The suspect was identified as Seyed Hassan Kaboli,” Beason said.
Detectives arrested Kaboli about 3:45 p.m. Tuesday in the area of 4500 Delta Street and booked him on suspicion of forcible rape, false imprisonment and torture, Beason said.
Kaboli was being held in lieu of $1 million bail, she said.
Anyone with information regarding this case or similar cases was urged to call the SDPD’s Sex Crimes Unit at 619-531-2210 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at 888-580-8477.
