SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 49-year-old ex-con was back behind bars Wednesday on suspicion of abducting a 15-year-old girl at an East County Wal-Mart store and raping her.
About 10:30 a.m. Monday, parolee David Joseph Lascelles allegedly pulled a gun on the teen at the Wal-Mart in an unincorporated area just northeast of El Cajon and forced her into his vehicle, sheriff's Sgt. Justin White said.
He then took her to Fiesta Island, where he allegedly sexually assaulted her, and later drove the victim to Alpine and dropped her off, the sergeant said.
The girl was able to identify Lascelles as her alleged assailant, White said. Early Tuesday afternoon, members of a fugitive task force caught up with the suspect at a business in the 1200 block of Imperial Avenue in the East Village district of downtown San Diego and took him into custody without incident.
Lascelles was booked into county jail on suspicion of kidnapping to commit rape, forcible rape and other sex assault-related charges. He was being held without bail pending an initial court appearance scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
