Train station attack defendant to trial
August 22, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A 22-year-old transient accused of trying to rape a woman crossing the San Mateo Caltrain Station’s underground stairs last year will stand trial on several felonies after waiving a preliminary hearing on the evidence.

The waiver propels Fernando Chamale-Boch straight to a jury trial on charges of kidnapping with the intent to rape, assault with the intent to rape, false imprisonment and battery. He returns to court Sept. 4 to enter a Superior Court plea and set a trial date.

San Mateo police arrested Chamale-Boch Oct. 20, 2013, after a woman identified him as the man she said grabbed her in the darkened station hallway approaching the stairwell about 7 p.m. that Sunday. 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 called police who found him nearby later that night with scratches on his face.

His defense attorney questioned Chamale-Boch’s ability to stand trial but in June a majority of court-appointed doctors found him competent.

He remains in custody on $2 million bail.
