A San Rafael man was arrested on allegations he tried to rape his ex-girlfriend in her car while her 2-year-old son was in the back seat, police said.
Pablo Esteban Ceballos-Caamal, 23, was booked on suspicion of assault to commit rape, criminal threats, false imprisonment, battery, criminal threats and other counts, according to the county jail. He is expected to make a court appearance Monday.
Ceballos-Caamal was arrested Thursday morning after an incident on Canal Street, where he had an argument with a 21-year-old former girlfriend, said San Rafael police Cpl. Todd Berringer.
Ceballos-Caamal allegedly restrained the woman in her car and tried to rape her, then fled before police arrived in response to a 911 call from the neighborhood, Berringer said. Police arrested the suspect about five hours later after finding him at his last known address, an apartment on Novato Street.
The alleged victim, a San Rafael resident, declined medical treatment.
"She had a bite mark to her face, bruising on her wrists," Berringer said.
The toddler was not injured during the incident. Ceballos-Caamal is not the boy's father.
Deputy District Attorney Charles Cacciatore said the case was still under review Friday and no charges had been filed.
Ceballos-Caamal is unable to post bail because he is being detained on a federal immigration hold pending investigation into his citizenship status.
