Default Homeless Rape Spook Arrested In San Jose Encampment


Homeless Rape Suspect Arrested In San Jose Encampment
February 8, 2019 at 11:55 am

SANTA CLARA COUNTY (KPIX 5) — A homeless man wanted in the rape of a woman whose family had befriended him was taken into custody Friday in a San Jose encampment, authorities said.

San Jose police said 43-year-old Sharwian Bobian was being taken to the Santa Clara County jail where he will be held on sexual assault charges.

The case had stirred up a firestorm of controversy after the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office initially decided not to file charges because Bobian’s history of mental illness would make it difficult to win a conviction.

After the outcry, prosecutors filed charges earlier this week.

“I feel relieved and happy that they’re pursuing charges. It is very concerning that they don’t know where he’s at yet,” said the victim, who asked to remain anonymous.
