Man charged with taking woman hostage
April 02, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal


A 20-year-old man who allegedly attacked a San Mateo woman who walked in on him burglarizing her home and held her hostage for nearly a day while repeatedly accessing her bank account was charged Tuesday with 19 felonies.Hugo Munguia, of Redwood City, was arrested Friday on suspicion of the March 17 attack after police released a photo of a man using the 66-year-old woman’s bank card at multiple ATMs. He’s being held without bail and Tuesday was charged with several crimes including five counts of residential burglary, four counts of identity theft, kidnapping for ransom, robbery, threatening a witness, criminal threats, threatening a witness, assault with a stun gun, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment of an elder, grand theft of property and possession of stolen property.Munguia has no prior criminal history in San Mateo County, according to court records, but authorities say he attacked the woman in her Edinburgh Street home just before 1 p.m. after she returned home from shopping at Trader Joe’s. After tying the woman up, the man later identified as Munguia left to withdraw money from several ATMs and returned to her home at least once, according to San Mateo police. Police said the man stole items including jewelry and electronics from the woman before finally leaving the home with her still bound. She freed herself around noon March 18 and called police from a neighbor’s home. The woman had non-life threatening injuries and was treated at a hospital. Police received about 30 leads from the ATM photo and arrested Munguia at his home three days later.
