WEST COVINA – When West Covina Police Department received a frantic 3AM call of a strange male found nude in the caller’s bed – immediate action commenced. The victim had been awakened by the stark-naked suspect next to her.
“The victim was able to flee and contact the West Covina Police Department,” said West Covina PD Community Relations Officer Alexus Napoles. “The suspect was unknown to the victim.”
Arriving officers to the 100 block of South Barranca Avenue on November 11th found no sign of the vanished nude suspect. However, with evidence collection and investigative leads, West Covina Detective Bureau located the suspect – to execute an arrest 12 hours later.
Suspect Brayan Castellanos-Matute (20), of Artesia, was booked at West Covina PD Jail. His charges included residential burglary and assault to commit rape.
Castellanos-Matute is fully-clothed in a jail cell, held on $1 Million Bail – as he awaits his trial day in court. West Covina Police is actively seeking other potential victims for this ongoing investigation. Anyone with further information or who may have been a victim of Castellanos-Matute is urged to call West Covina Police Department (626) 939-8500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
