41-year-old Frank Cabrera was taken into custody for aggravated burglary, aggravated rape, sexual battery, and two counts of theft on June 6th. On May 26th, a woman reported that she was sexually assaulted by a male she knew as “Juan,” later identified as Cabrera. She stated that she met him at 404 Bar & Grill, and they went to her apartment building to hang out in her vehicle in a public space. Before they left, she said he had his friend grab his phone from a red Toyota Tundra.

Once at the apartment complex, he asked for a beer, so she went to get it for him because she did not want him to enter her unit, but Cabrera came in anyway, picked her up, put her on the countertop while groping her breasts and removing her bra. After she told him she did not want to do that, he threw her onto her bed, removed her pants, and penetrated her vagina with his fingers until she ripped off his necklace and strangled him with a charging cable until he stopped.

When he left, she locked the door behind him. While she prepared for a shower, Cabrera re-entered her apartment looking for his necklace, which was when she told him to leave. She grabbed her phone and started to call the police, so he fled and took her car keys and purse. Footage from the apartment building corroborated her statements, showing him entering her car and driving away. Her car was recovered at a nearby gas station, with cameras showing him parking at the pump and going to the Lowe’s parking lot, wandering to the loading dock until he was picked up in a red Toyota Tundra. The location had private license plate readers, which showed the Tundra being registered to Cabrera. Warrants were issued for his arrest on June 5th. He was later detained for the incident.
