Attempted Rape of Teen Leads to Arrest, Napa Police Say

Late Monday night, a 27-year-old Napa man allegedly tried to rape a 17-year-old girl, leaving her with injuries, after climbing in her bedroom window, Napa police said.

A brutal sexual assault on a Napa teenager in her home late Monday night resulted in the arrest Tuesday of 27-year-old Kansas Court resident Miguel Garibay, according to a media release from the City of Napa Police Department:

On November 5, 2012 at about 2300hrs, Garibay went to the 17 year old victim’s home in the north Napa area. He entered her bedroom via a window. They had met on-line last week.

After entering her bedroom Garibay sexually assaulted the victim. The victim suffered injuries from his attack.

The victim’s parents heard a commotion in the victim’s bedroom. They attempted to apprehend Garibay who fled via the window he had entered.  

Napa Police Department officers responded to the scene and attempted to locate Garibay but he was gone.

Napa Police Department detectives responded to the scene to complete the investigation. An Arrest Warrant was requested and signed by the Napa Courts.  

On 11-6-2012 at 1748hrs, Garibay turned himself in to officers at the Chevron Station on Salvador Avenue.

Garibay was arrested on suspicion of burglary, false imprisonment, forcible penetration, attempted oral copulation and attempted rape, police said. Arrest information does not indicate a conviction.

Wrong name, wrong Facebook profile.

Yeah, I don't think that it is responsible to post a facebook profile. It is too easy to make a mistake.

That did happen last year when I was on vacation. The person whose picture was wrongly posted contacted us and we took it down right away with apologies. But when we put this on the NVP Facebook page recently a user, posting under her full name, said the same person had contacted her in what she felt was an inappropriate way. So it's not clear to me that this actually is a mistake, but if it's shown to be one, I will take responsibility.
