Davis PD arrests Sacramento man in Feb. 5 rape

By Bill Lindelof

Davis police say a Sacramento area man is a suspect in the rape of a 21-year-old woman in February.

Leonardo Avalos, 28, was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, rape and other sexual charges on Thursday, police said.

Police said that the woman Avalos at a bar in downtown Davis on Feb. 5. She had been out at the bar with her friends and shared a few drinks with Avalos, police said.

Avalos drove the woman to her apartment and while there she refused his sexual advances, police said. He offered to drive the woman back to the bar to re-connect with her friends but instead drove to the outskirts of Davis against her wishes, police stated in a news release.

There, she was sexually assaulted, police said. Avalos then drove her back to her home, according to police.

Working only with a description of a suspect and his vehicle, detectives said they followed a trail of evidence that led to Avalos.
