Etienne Juarez RosasA 24-year-old Winnetka man has been charged with raping a woman at the parking lot of a Valencia restaurant, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Emily Cole said Etienne Juarez Rosas, 24, faces one count each of kidnapping to commit rape and forcible rape and two counts of sexual penetration by foreign object in case PA084623.

  10. Keith Dill Keith Dill says:

    Be aware of your surroundings!! To be an easy target. Public humiliation should be allowed with men like this!! Display him on a lamppost in the promenade!!

  11. Joe Nocella Joe Nocella says:

    If it happened at Denny’s, why show a picture of the Promenade? Poor disclosure.

  12. Alvin Rivera so scary :(

  13. Another illegal alien. What a surprise.

  14. ReCee Bee ReCee Bee says:

    Cristina Valenzuela-Abbott
    So I guess this is what happened?!!
    I wonder if he worked at Azul Tequila???

  15. Dennis Slater where did it state he was an illegal alien. To be Latino does not equate to be an undocumented. He is a rapist and a scumbag, but you are a racist.

    • Keoki Keoki Keoki Keoki says:

      Latino is not a race so Dennis can’t be racist.

    • I didn’t say anything about his race. I said something about his legal status. Hes an illegal alien and we all know it. Cant wait for Trump to get in office and handle this horrible problem of illegal immigration.

      • Laura says:

        Dennis Slater how do you know his not legal?? What does trump have to do with an innocent woman being raped??? Do you remember the case of the white dood who raped and killed his own, first born daughter who was no more than 3 months old?hmmmm well I guess cuz he was white u didn’t have much to say about that huh? This is not a matter of anyone being legal or not! So sad santa clarita is getting worse each day that goes by. I hope all these people who commit these crimes pay for there crimes none of them are any different there all monsters here.

    • Erwin Blanco Erwin Blanco says:

      Dennis Slater your right

    • Erik Meloni Erik Meloni says:

      The character of a rapist would be synonymous with the same type of dirtbag who WOULD cross the border illegally,so it’s safe to assume he’s undocumented.
      Think about it,if he can’t get laid legitimately what makes anyone think that he’d enter our country legally?
      Get a clue Guadalupe

    • Um no the character of a rapist is NOT synonymous with those who cross the border illegally. That is probably the most ridiculous thing I’ve read today.

    • Dennis Slater when you judge someone by the way they look and assume that are illegal just because they are latino that is being racist. Yes I would figure you would be Dumb Trump follower.

    • Erik Meloni you sound like an uneducated man. Rape is a power crime. An assumption is only that. YOU Get a clue… and don’t be ignorant, to be undocumented does not mean you’re a rapist.
      He will have his court date and a jury to convict him.

    • Jason Moller Jason Moller says:

      Guadalupe Meza Marroquin Thump is decent and Knowing a person of high caliber of you and your well being, when Donald JTrump wins or possible another candidate. I would definitely never miss represent your wishes and your a nice woman to yourself.

    • Illegal aliens are criminals just by being here. Does the word illegal mean anything to you? Unfortunately most of them commit more crimes besides just being here too.

    • Erwin blanco we live in the united states and only are laws are valid. Period.

    • Guadalupe…not that I see who you are and your background it doesn’t surprise me that you support illegal immigration.

    • But all i see out on the street is a bunch of white people standing at fwy asking for money …how sorry is that but illegals work ….i don’t see them asking for money all i see is a bunch of lowlife white people out there

  16. ReCee Bee yes he did work their. He was a server.. That’s gross

  17. Justin Knott Justin Knott says:

    Laura MellesVai Melles

  20. Whiskey Strong so disgusting.

  21. Vai Melles Vai Melles says:

    Thanks Justin Knott. I’m very aware of my surroundings especially when by myself. So glad he’s been caught & charged!!

  22. Gaby Zuniga Gaby Zuniga says:

    Yvette Gonzalez Did you hear about this?! 😳

  23. Erik Meloni you sound like an uneducated man. Rape is a power crime. An assumption is only that. YOU Get a clue… and don’t be ignorant, to be undocumented does not mean you’re a rapist.
    He will have his court date and a jury to convict him.

  24. Nayeli Parks Nayeli Parks says:

    Liliana Pinto this happened by Dennis magic mountain

  25. Melody Haddad I’m so glad you’re safe omg

  26. Craig Berry Craig Berry says:

    Josh Sellers keep your neighbor’s out of our town.

  27. People talk and don’t read , get information first, he doesn’t work at Denny’s and he is not from around here 😡

  28. This is really scary! Here in our Santa Clarita ! How did they catch the man?

  29. Dennis Slater yes I do know the meaning of criminal. There is a difference between unlawful and criminal. Again,there was no official statement saying the suspect was undocumented.

  30. Dennis Slater who said I support undocumented immigrants. Your rhetoric is unsound. You obviously do not comprehend very well. My background. .. you have no idea again making assumptions.

  31. Not in Santa Clarita. This was one of the safest cities in the area. Feel bad for the girl that got raped. I hope they throw the book at this guy. Though it doesn’t surprise me, usually guys like him say the dirtiest things about female customers in this town. No class whatsoever.

  32. I don’t get it how the fukk do you get off if the other person ain’t feelin it if a chic ain’t feelin it my dicc can’t even get hard hell no that’s just unacceptable!!!!!

  33. He’s gon have to pc up or there’s serious altertanatives!!!!!

  34. And ima say one more thing im tired of some of you stupid ignorant mafuccaz who think my blacc ass is up to no good when these fukkers like this are usin me as a decoy to do nonsense open your eyes
