A few hours later, police say Blanquet broke into his ex-wife’s home a few blocks away in the 9200 block of Cypress and washed blood off his clothes. The clothes matched what he was wearing at the time of the rape, according to police.
Blanquet has been arrested on suspicion of rape and on an outstanding felony warrant for the forcible rape of a juvenile family member in 2017. Police say when Blanquet was taken into custody, officers found “his binder which talked contained numerous written pages talking about his fantasies about rape.”MORE NEWS: 6-Year-Old Boy Wounded After Gunfire Erupts At Sun Valley Apartment Complex; Female Suspect Sought
