Raul Antonio Ramos, 28, of Westminster, could have got up to 50 years to life in prison if convicted at trial, so he copped Wednesday to forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and impersonating a police officer, all felonies. As part of his plea deal, a charge of oral copulation under the color of authority was dropped. Ramos, who worked as a security guard in Santa Ana, solicited the then-19-year-old victim for sex on Dec. 11, 2015. When they got into a Ramada Inn of Anaheim motel room, he told her he was a police officer, showed her his security guard badge and threatened her with arrest if she did not have sex with him. He placed a video camera on a nightstand to record her orally copulating him, but she quickly grabbed Ramos’ keys and camera and ran out of the room in only a towel and got help at a nearby store. Anaheim cops showed up at arrested Ramos.
Gonzalo Castro, 28, of San Clemente, was popped Wednesday for the alleged assault on a Marina High School student. She says she was 17 and on an off-campus training run with the school’s volunteer track and field coach when the the incident happened. She claimed she had only developed an athlete/coach relationship with him when the alleged crime was reported to the Huntington Beach Police Department. An investigation led to the arrest of Castro, who was on active duty as a recruiter out of the Marines' Costa Mesa office at the time. Huntington Beach high schools were part of his recruitment area. Arrested without incident on suspicion of sexual assault of a minor, he later posted bond. The investigation continues, and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Anthony Pham at 714.536.5973 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
