When interviewing the woman, deputies were told that she had been followed to the 1500 block of 2nd Street, in the city of Norco, by an adult male whom she had met earlier in the evening. The victim reported that once the suspect caught up to her, he physically assaulted her. The suspect also threatened to sexually assault her and took the victim’s purse and cell phone.

Following the victim’s description of the suspect, deputies and the Sheriff’s K-9 Team searched the area. The suspect was eventually discovered hiding in the backyard of a residence in the 1500 block of 2nd Street. The suspect was found to have the woman’s purse and cell phone on his person. James Allen Schneider, a 21-year-old resident of Norco, was taken into custody and booked into jail at the Robert Presley Detention Center for attempted rape, robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon.
