Big-rig driver charged with attempted murder
April 10, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Alfonso Suarez-Prendes

A Las Vegas big-rig driver tried to strangle a female passenger he picked up in the East Bay with a towing strap on Friday in San Mateo after she refused to have sex, according to prosecutors who charged him with attempted murder.

Alfonso Suarez-Prendes, 49, is also charged with kidnaping and assault with a deadly weapon in the April 4 attack.

San Mateo police arrested Suarez-Prendes after responding to a 911 call just before 2 p.m. from a person who reported hearing a woman yelling for help from a big-rig being driven through the city. Police stopped the truck on El Camino Real near Ninth Avenue and found the woman in the passenger seat with a “load/tow” strap wrapped twice around her neck. The rope was tied to the raised arm rest of the driver’s seat.

The woman told police she met Suarez-Prendes in the East Bay and asked for a ride to San Francisco. During the trip, he reportedly asked for sex and grew angry when she said no. He allegedly grabbed the woman and wrapped the strap around her neck.

On Wednesday, Suarez-Prendes appeared in court on the felonies and asked for a court-appointed attorney. He did not enter a plea and returns to court April 14.

He remains in custody without bail.
