Synopsis: In April of 2013 the Fort Bragg Police Department forwarded a report to the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office regarding a possible rape incident.

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office Detective Unit launched an investigation, which included interviewing the victim. It was learned that the victim, a female who was 16 years of age at the time, had been involved in a dating relationship with Albaro Antonio Fuentes who was 18 years of age at the time.

The Sheriff's Detective learned in October of 2011 the victim attended a party with Fuentes in the city of Fort Bragg. After the party the victim brought Fuentes, who had been drinking alcohol, back to her parent's residence.

While at the residence Fuentes attempted to have sexual intercourse with the victim. When the victim refused, Fuentes allegedly forcibly raped her.

During the course of the investigation the Sheriff's Detective was able to obtain evidence which corroborated the victim's allegation.

On 05-24-13, Detectives arrested Fuentes in Point Arena and transported him to the Mendocino County Jail where he was booked to be held in lieu of $100,000.00 bail.
