OAKLAND — A man behind bars is ineligible for release on bond, pending a September 26 hearing to revoke his parole status. Mercedes D. Dunlap, 33, of Hayward, was arrested by Oakland police and U.S. Marshals for more crimes.

Dunlap, 33, of Hayward, has been staying at Santa Rita Jail since his arrest earlier this month. Dunlap allegedly committed robbery and attempted rape. This marks his fourth arrest since 2013.

On August 28, Oakland police responded to the 2900 block of Parker Avenue. A pedestrian reported being approached from behind by an armed man. She was tackled to the ground shortly after 9:30 a.m.

The suspect began sexually assaulting her. She screamed for help and yelled for someone to phone for police. Then the suspect stole the victim’s cell phone and fled from the area.

Dunlap was identified as the suspect. He was later found in San Ramon and arrested September 8 at 2:50 p.m. Besides robbery and assault with intent to commit a sex crime, he was booked for carrying a concealed firearm.

A lengthy list of charges and special allegations were filed against Dunlap for what happened on August 28. Altogether he faces a whopping total of 36 new felony charges.

Dunlap has prior convictions and was sentenced to four years incarceration at San Quentin State Prison. His record includes arrests for home invasion robbery, burglary, street terrorism, and illegal firearm possession.
