DISTRICT ATTORNEY SEEKS POTENTIAL ADDITIONAL VICTIMS OF MAN CHARGED WITH FORCING TWO WOMEN TO PERFORM SEX ACTS AFTER THREATENING THEM WITH A WEAPON
FULLERTON – The Orange County District Attorney’s Office is seeking potential additional victims of a 22-year-old man who was charged today with forcing two women to perform sex acts after threatening them at knife point. Rulin Hernandez Loaeza, Garden Grove, is charged with two felony counts each of forcible oral copulation and criminal threats with a sentencing enhancement allegation for sexual crimes against multiple victims. If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum sentence of 15 years to life in state prison. The people will be requesting Loaeza be held on $1 million bail at his arraignment today, Dec. 17, 2009, at 1:30 p.m. in Department N-3, North Justice Center, Fullerton.
At approximately 6:00 p.m., on Nov. 3, 2009, Loaeza is accused of offering 19-year-old Jane Doe #1 a ride home after meeting her outside of a store in a Garden Grove. Loaeza is accused of driving the victim in his 4-door sedan to a secluded area and parking. The defendant is accused of pulling out a weapon and threatening to kill Jane Doe #1 if she did not orally copulate him. After performing the sex act, the victim was able to flee. Jane Doe #1 reported the assault to police.
At approximately 10:30 p.m., on Nov. 18, 2009, Loaeza is accused of picking up Jane Doe #2 in Stanton. The defendant is accused of driving the victim in his car to a desolate area and parking.
