On Wednesday January 17, 2018 Detectives from the San Luis Obispo Police Department served a search warrant at the home of 39 year-old Alfonso Alarconnunez in the 2300 block of Cesar Chavez, in the City of Santa Maria. Alarconnunez was identified as the suspect in two separate sexual assault cases which occurred in San Luis Obispo in the early morning hours of December 18th, 2017 and January 14th, 2018. Alarconnunez was arrested near his residence by SLO PD Detectives.

During an extensive investigation, Detectives learned that Alarconnunez is employed as an Uber driver and had provided service in the City of San Luis Obispo. The investigation revealed Alarconnunez was targeting intoxicated females and escorting them into their residences where he would then sexually assault them. In both of these cases it is believed Alarconnunez also stole items of property from the victims including cellular phones, computers, and jewelry. There were multiple victims identified in each of these cases.

Detectives believe Alarconnunez would search for parties in San Luis Obispo and solicit rides as an Uber driver. The investigation revealed Alarconnunez would collect payment through a Venmo pay service to disguise his identity and his Uber records.

The San Luis Obispo Police Department would like to make the public aware of the positive services being provided by Uber and Lyft drivers. These are legitimate and responsible services which provide a benefit to members of our community who are seeking a safe alternative mode of transportation. When using these services, customers should confirm the identity of the driver and the vehicle they request through the Uber or Lyft application before getting in a vehicle. Payment should also be made through the Uber and/or Lyft company and not another pay service company.

    Now, here is the dilemma or problem for the Left: Do they champion the cause of women, or do they defend the ethnic minority?!

    Remember, for them it is all about ideology, If there are casualties along the way, so be it.
