Fabian Villa, 28, of Santa Ana, fled to Mexico after becoming a suspect in a sexual assault and two indecent exposure incidents in his town in 2016, according to the Santa Ana Police Department. Just after 10:45 p.m. on Dec. 27 of last year, a woman was parking her vehicle near the 1600 Block of South Pacific Avenue when she was approached by a man who opened the driver’s side door, climbed inside and pulled down his pants to expose himself. He then forced himself on top of the woman and attempted to sexually assault her, but she screamed and kicked so violently that he got off of her, got out of the car and ran off west on Occidental Street. Santa Ana Police Crime Scene investigators collected DNA evidence that was submitted to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Crime Lab for analysis. In February, detectives were notified DNA matched Villa. Meanwhile, after news of the incident got out, two more alleged victims came forward to claim they had flashed by a man who drove a white Toyota Camry, which police later determined as stolen, located in San Diego and recovered. Guess what was inside? Villa’s identification. The Santa Ana detectives collaborated with the Orange County District Attorney’s office and U.S. Marshals, who worked with Mexican officials to locate Villa,, who was returned to this side of the border on Thursday. He's now being held on $1 million bail as he faces charges of assault with the intent to commit a sexual offense, assault with a deadly weapon, auto theft, receiving stolen property and indecent exposure.
