Attempted rape suspect pleads not guilty in San Mateo Caltrain Station attack
November 06, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Fernando Chamale-Boch

A 21-year-old transient accused of trying to rape a woman crossing the San Mateo Caltrain Station via the underground stairs last month pleaded not guilty to charges of kidnapping with the intent to rape, assault with the intent to rape, false imprisonment and battery.

San Mateo police arrested Fernando Chamale-Boch on Sunday, Oct. 20 after responding to a woman’s 911 call for help. The woman said she spotted Chamale-Boch standing in a dark hallway as she approached the stairwell about 7 p.m. that night and turned to go but was grabbed. The suspect covered her mouth as she screamed, and pulled her 6 feet down the stairs as she punched and scratched at his face.

After she fought herself free, she phoned police who found him nearby later that night with scratches on his face.

He denied any involvement.

After entering his plea yesterday, Chamale-Boch was scheduled for a preliminary hearing Dec. 20. Chamale-Boch remains in custody on $2 million bail.
