Michael Delgado, 300 Pounder, Accused of Raping Maid He Hired Off Craigslist
A Fullerton man answered a Craigslist ad from a maid he is alleged to have raped in his apartment, according to police.
Michael Delgado, 27, was scheduled to be arraigned today on two felony counts of forcible rape, two felony counts of forcible oral copulation, one felony count of sexual penetration by foreign object, and one felony count of false imprisonment by violence.
If convicted, Delgado could spend the next 40 years cleaning up his prison cell.
He is accused of hiring the 42-year-old woman for housecleaning services that were supposed to be performed Friday in his apartment in a gate complex in the 1500 block of Brea Boulevard. After Delgado greeted her at the front door shortly before 8 a.m. and took her past several security doors, she is claimed to have gotten spooked and asked to leave.
That when 300 lbs. Delgado allegedly went all French IMF official on her, blocking the entrance and then pinning the 5-foot-3, 120 lbs. maid to the ground. There, over the next hour, Delgado is accused of forcibly digitally penetrating the maid, forcibly raping her twice, and forcing her to orally copulate him twice. He is further alleged to have threatened her not to yell.
She eventually broke free and ran out of the apartment complex before asking a passerby to summon help. Fullerton police responded, grabbed Delgado and got a positive I.D. from the maid that he was the alleged rapist. He was later booked into city jail on suspicion of rape, false imprisonment, rape with a foreign object and assault.
The police investigation continues, and anyone with information is asked to call Det. Kathryn Hamel at 714.738.5327. Meanwhile, prosecutors fear the maid may not be the only victim. If you believe you were one, contact Supervising District Attorney Investigator Lou Gutierrez at 714.347.8794
