[ARCHIVED] Sexual Assault & Felony Battery Arrest

Hemet Police AB109 Sheldon Johnson Arrest Rape

Sexual Assault & Felony Battery Investigation


This is updated information regarding yesterday’s press release about incident occurring in the 3100 block of Warley Rd. in Hemet.

Sheldon Johnson was arrested for several felony charges and has been booked into County Jail with a bail of $1 million. Johnson is on AB109 probation, had a prior dating relationship with the victim, and had previously served time in state prison for assaulting the victim. The victim did have an active domestic violence restraining order against the suspect. Police are researching the circumstances under which Johnson was released from his most recent prison term as well as the severity of the charges he was convicted of and incarcerated for in that case. Capt. Rob Webb said, “He certainly does not seem to fit the criteria of a non-violent offender under AB109, we will be looking into the manner in which he was released from prison.”

Originally, officers detained two subjects at the scene and after the initial investigation released one of them after determining he was uninvolved with the incident. Please see the original press release for further details.

Arrested: Sheldon Ray Johnson, 24 years old of Moreno Valley, CA
Charges: 261(A)(2) PC Rape by force/fear
286(D) PC Sodomy
289(A)(1) PC Sexual penetration
273.5(e)(1) PC Domestic Violence with prior
236 PC False Imprisonment

220 PC Assault with intent to commit rape
667.5(a) PC Prison prior with new violent crime



Sexual Assault & Felony Battery Investigation

At about 2:40 PM today, officers from the Hemet Police Department began responding to the 3100 block of Warley Rd., in Hemet for a report of a possible residential burglary in progress. Once officers arrived at the location they became involved in a physical struggle with a suspect in the front yard. The suspect was detained at the scene. Officers then contacted the female resident of the home, who was found to be seriously injured. The victim was transported to a local hospital for medical attention.

Preliminary investigation has revealed that the suspect is known to the victim, and that he forced his way into the home where the victim was then attacked and sexually assaulted. Investigators are still interviewing several people and processing the scene; trying to determine what occurred. More information will be made available at a later time detailing the charges, arrests, etc.
