Jerry Moon

An 18-year-old Stevenson Ranch man has been arrested and booked on charges of attempted murder, rape, kidnapping and home-invasion robbery in connection with a brutal assault that occurred early Sunday morning, Jan. 8.

Jerry Moon was arrested without incident as he walked out of his home Thursday after being identified as the suspect with the help of surveillance video provided by the Stevenson Ranch Homeowners Association.

The following details were provided by Lt. Stephen Low at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station:

“A residential robbery was reported to patrol deputies who learned that an adult female at the (Stevenson Ranch) location was sexually assaulted during the robbery. Members of the Sheriff’s Crime lab responded to the location and processed the crime scene collecting several pieces of evidence. Detective Campbell from the Santa Clarita Valley Detective Bureau Robbery/Assault team also responded and started the investigation.

“Detective Campbell worked closely with the Stevenson Ranch Homeowner’s Association which assisted in providing video footage near the crime scene. Detectives from the Robbery/Assault team combed the neighborhood for information and witnesses.

“A series of small clues, DNA evidence, and the skilled detective work by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Detective Campbell helped provide the information needed to identify the suspect responsible for this vicious attack.

“Through department resources, Detective Campbell was able to obtain a recent photo of the potential suspect and his last known address. On February 16, 2012, Detectives conducted a surveillance of the suspect’s residence and saw the suspect exiting his residence. He was taken into custody without incident.

“Detectives from the Santa Clarita Robbery/Assault Team served a search warrant at the suspect’s home on Steinbeck Avenue in Stevenson Ranch. Detective Campbell recovered property that appeared to be connected to the incident at the location.”

Moon is being held in lieu of $2.45 million bail and is scheduled to appear Tuesday in San Fernando Superior Court.
