Pacifica man arrested for alleged sexual assault
December 26, 2013, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

A 25-year-old sex offender was arrested Monday morning after a woman identified him as a man who allegedly sexually assaulted her while walking eastbound on Manor Drive in Pacifica after dropping her kids off at day care.

About five minutes after the reported assault, Pacifica police located Jeremy Castro, 27, on the 400 block of Manor Drive. The woman identified Castro, of Pacifica, as the man who attacked her in the area of Monterey Road at approximately 9:40 a.m. Dec. 23 and police arrested him.

Castro grabbed the woman, groping her breasts and between her legs as she screamed and struggled, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

He allegedly told responding officers that he thought the woman was his wife and it was “just a prank he learned on YouTube,” according to Wagstaffe.

Castro was booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility on suspicion of felony sexual battery, false imprisonment and violating his misdemeanor probation imposed for a similar act in San Francisco in December 2012.

On Tuesday afternoon, he pleaded not guilty to the new charges and asked for a court-appointed attorney. He returns to court Jan. 7 for a preliminary hearing.

Bail was set at $25,000 but he also held without bail because of the probation violation.
