YUBA CITY MAN ARRESTED FOR ALLEGED SEXUAL ASSAULT AND 2 STOLEN VEHICLE ATTEMPTS

A Yuba City man was arrested yesterday morning after allegedly sexually assaulting one person, then, trying to steal two other people’s vehicles. YCPD were called just after 10:00 yesterday morning to a disturbance at Shanghai Bend Park where they saw 27-year-old Edgar Jimenez reportedly jump out of a white BMW and run toward the wastewater treatment plant, where he was detained. The driver told officers he had stopped her vehicle and demanded a ride. Fearing for her safety, she complied, but had only driven a few blocks before responding officers arrived and Jimenez fled. In between the sexual assault and carjacking attempt, Jimenez allegedly attempted to steal a man’s car at Shanghai Bend Park. However, as Lt. Sam Eschman points out in a press release, “the owner of the car was in possession of the keys, making it difficult for Jimenez to complete the act of stealing the vehicle.”
