Man, 18, Faces Judge In Anaheim, Santa Ana Sexual Assaults

View Comments

SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — Arraignment was postponed for an 18-year-old man who faces charges of sexually assaulting two women in separate attacks in Santa Ana and Anaheim.

Raymond Boykin of Anaheim was ordered to reappear in court on Jan. 10 in a hearing Tuesday. Boykin was named in a $1 million arrest warrant after a 19-year-old woman was sexually assaulted last Wednesday in a parking structure at the Westfield MainPlace Mall, Santa Ana police Corporal Anthony Bertagna said.

Boykin had tried to buy a phone at a Verizon store at the MainPlace Mall, but was $20 short, Bertagna said. He left the store and robbed and sexually assaulted the woman in the parking garage at knifepoint, then returned to the store to the buy the phone, he said.

“The (surveillance) video we have shows him with her purse getting the extra 20 bucks out to buy the phone,” Bertagna said. “He’s sweating profusely, taking his jacket off and going through her wallet.”

The purse seen in the store video matches the handbag stolen from the victim, Bertagna said.

Two days later, Anaheim police Lt. Bob Dunn said Boykin sexually assaulted a 42-year-old woman at about 6:15 a.m. in the parking lot of Sa Rang Community Church in Anaheim. The victim broke free and ran across the street to a gas station, where she called police, he said.

When police arrived at the scene, the woman’s car was missing, presumably stolen by her attacker. The stolen car was spotted a few hours later at Sycamore and Pauline streets. When police tried to pull the car over, the driver refused and a chase ensued, Dunn said. The chase ended at Olive and Sycamore streets with a crash.

Three of the four occupants in the car remained at the scene, but one man ran away and was later caught, Dunn said.

Boykin is charged with one felony count each of forcible oral copulation, second-degree robbery, unlawful taking of a vehicle and evading while driving recklessly and two felony counts of assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense.

Boykin also faces sentence-enhancing allegations for the personal use of a deadly weapon. If convicted at trial, he could face up to 27 years to life in prison.
