Woman Robbed, Sexually Assaulted in Millbrae; Suspect Arrested

MILLBRAE (BCN) -- San Mateo County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 33-year-old man early Wednesday in Millbrae in connection with a robbery and sexual assault of a woman.

Deputies responded to a 1:45 a.m. report of the incident in the 100 block of California Drive. Upon arrival, they found a woman who said a man assaulted her, held her down, groped her, stole her mobile phone and cash, and threatened to force her into prostitution before he fled the scene.

Deputies found a man nearby matching the description -- and in possession of the victim's possessions -- and arrested him on suspicion of four felonies: robbery, sexual assault, false imprisonment and pandering a person for prostitution.

The suspect was not identified.
