A rape reportedly occurred in the 5100 block of Muir Steet in Ocean Beach on November 2, according to crimemapping.com
In an interview with San Diego police Lt. Natalie Stone, she said the victim met the assailant on the internet and exchanged emails and phone calls back and forth for about three weeks. They met up for dinner at a Harbor Drive restaurant on the night in question and then went back to his place on Muir Avenue.
The victim says she thought she was drugged by the suspect and then the rape occurred. Lt. Stone said the suspect does not fit the M.O. of other assailants being sought in the recent, numerous sex crimes that have occurred in O.B.
Further, in an email from Lt. Stone, she stated, "The suspect was not arrested in the 261 [rape] that happened on 11/2/12. The detective working the case is still trying to contact the victim and verify her statement. That is the first step in the investigation. Part of her statement is whether or not she is willing to go through with prosecution. If she is not, then we don’t make contact with the ‘suspect,’ and would not put information out about his name, description, etc. That would be unfair to the ‘suspect,’ especially if the victim later recanted her statement (not saying that she will, but that sometimes happens)."
