FEBRUARY 29 2012
SANTA CRUZ CA Feb 29 2012 - A 21-year-old Morgan Hill man was arrested on suspicion of sexual battery following reports of a disturbance early Saturday morning at the Santa Cruz Metro Center.
Officers were dispatched to the Pacific Avenue station around 1:30 a.m., police spokesman Zach Friend said. When they arrived, a Metro security guard was detaining a sexual assault suspect. The guard told police he heard a woman scream “no,” and he went to investigate. The guard said he interrupted the suspect, Kivet Mendoza, who was holding the woman against the building as he attempted to touch her inappropriately while she told him to stop.
When the security guard intervened, Mendoza allegedly refused to obey the guard’s commands and threatened to stab him, Friend said. Mendoza then reached into his front pocket and advanced on the security officer. The two struggled on the ground for a short while before the guard was able to secure Mendoza in handcuffs as Santa Cruz police officers arrived. Police found a folding knife in Mendoza’s pocket.
According to police, the victim had met Mendoza at a party and the two agreed to go to her home. They were waiting to catch a bus there when Mendoza allegedly began to force himself on the woman to her objection, Friend said.
Mendoza was arrested and booked into County Jail on suspicion of multiple charges, including sexual battery, criminal threats and assault with a deadly weapon.
This is a sample of the more serious attacks committed against private security during the past 5 days.
