A man wanted for assaulting the same women twice in the same night on Halloween weekend has been identified and arrested.
The attacks began in Upland, when the suspect, later identified as 25-year-old Angel Rojas of Fontana, reportedly assaulted a group of women outside a bar on N. 2nd Street around 2 a.m. on October 31st. Surveillance video shows Rojas first accosting two women. Two other women who saw the attacks asked him to leave. Instead, he drew closer, prompting one of the women to pushed him away. He subsequently punched all four of the women and then fled. The victims sustained only minor injuries and were treated at the scene.
Rojas then followed two of the women to a home located in Ontario. “He attacked both women a second time by punching and knocking them to the ground. He then fled the scene with one of the victim’s cell phones,” according to the Ontario Police Department news release.
Ontario and Upland police collaborated in the investigation to identify and apprehend the suspect. On November 4th, he was identified and arrested at his home in Fontana. One of the women’s cell phones was also recovered inside the house.
Rojas was booked at West Valley Detention Center for stalking, robbery, and witness intimidation. His bail was set at $500,000.
