A stranger suspected of slipping into bed with a woman in Blythe was behind bars today.
Jorge Cabello Jr., 24, was arrested about 8:45 p.m. Monday in the 1600 block of 14th Avenue, police said.
The woman told police she woke up about 8:25 p.m. to find a man she didn’t know in her bed in the 400 block of 14th Street, Blythe police Lt. Robert Mathews said.
“She felt someone enter the bed, but believed it was her husband returning home,” Mathews said. “When the victim rolled over to talk to her husband, she saw that it was Cabello … after the victim confronted him, Cabello exited through the front door.”
The woman’s husband said he saw someone matching Cabello’s description walking east on 14th, the lieutenant said.
When an officer tried to arrest Cabello, he made threats and made a move toward an officer, prompting police to use a Taser on him, Mathews said.
He said Cabello probably got in through an unlocked door.
“Thankfully, the victim was not physically harmed, but it is a reminder of the importance of personal safety while at home,” Mathews said. “This is not the first case in recent months where an unknown subject entered a residence, and caught the victim off guard.”
Cabello was booked in lieu of $35,000 bail and jailed in Blythe, with arraigned expected Friday at the Blythe Court, according to jail records.
