And I thought Fuller Park was getting better! I have not been seeing the Napa PD driving through it lately - they used to do this several times a day and they seemed to be keeping the low lifes in check. Now this!! This is OUR CITY PARK!! Shame on the Napa PD for not patrolling it better. I live only 2 blocks away and go there frequently to walk my dog.

So glad that sicko was arrested. Thank you Napa PD!

Caught in the act by a witness and police. Not much of a legal defense there for Mr. Cervantes. If convicted, he will spend his prison time sequestered with other convicted sexual predators to protect him from the general population of inmates. There will be larger, stronger, more violent and desperate rapists for him to deal with.

Boofing in the daylight? It's seems this individual needs some strong help. sickening!
Karen Garcia September 26, 2012 at 11:07 AM
Roger, doing it "in the daylight" is more troublesome to you than doing it with an unconscious woman?
Moss Adams September 26, 2012 at 04:11 PM
Stronger Leash Laws!

Well said karen

I’m surprised no one seems to be wondering why this woman was unconscious, but maybe I missed something. Was she drugged or intoxicated?

Sick! Poor woman. Who is down to do a walk or support "Take our Park back day" nothing against people who are homeless or downtrodden.. just for the general safety of our community. I don't want to judge or stereotype only be part of the solution. I know Napa Pd were working with our homeless community and walking the beats and connecting them with resources. So, more community policing presence of families and more involvment of the solution.

WHy was she unconscious?
Roger K. September 26, 2012 at 05:13 PM
NO woman deserves this type of terrible situation to happen to her. She may have been drugged or other, but I do hope the man who did this to her gets the help he needs!
Larene Marshall September 26, 2012 at 05:39 PM
By no means was I implying it was her fault! I was just wondering how she ended up in the park unconcious. Thankfully for her there was at least one responsible person in the park who reported this. Rachael - you can count me in. If we want our parks to be safe I think we need to pull together and form something akin to "Neighborhood Watch". It is only when people realize their behavior will not be tolerated, and will promptly be reported to the authorities, that we can expect to see a change.

Maybe we need to mobilize a citizens watch at Fuller
Moss Adams September 26, 2012 at 08:25 PM
Wow. I get a 30 minute lunch break & can barely finish my sandwich!
Leo Olyn September 26, 2012 at 08:46 PM
There is always at least 1 or two if nor more of Napa's "Homeless" hanging out in the park if not all day at least each a.m. early (0700-noon). Wish the Napa PD would make an extra effort to patrol Fuller Park and start questioning just why these people are there sleeping off whatever and oing whatever as well!!
Leo Olyn September 26, 2012 at 09:04 PM
Why not have security cameras installed through-out Fuller Park. There are plenty of night light-posts through-out the park. Install a camera on each one!! Who knows how much the City is currently spending on re-paving the drive-ways through the Park and repairing the surrounding sidewalks. I bet it is at least $350-400K Install a security system and then have it linked to the Napa PD office downtown - only 4-6 blocks away!!!
Mark Mathews September 27, 2012 at 12:19 AM
Whoa, if this was "witnessed in action," then there is NO "suspected" about it. string this violent shred of human waste from a tree; I will provide the rope. ENOUGH of this criminal coddling.

Will you pay for it? We already don't have a bus system for our schools for Napa residents. Sports were cut last year at middle schools.
Louisa Hufstader (Editor) September 28, 2012 at 01:50 PM
Louise, just to clarify: Schools are not funded or operated by the city.
