Man convicted of sexually assaulting teen on bus

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl as they rode a bus through National City was convicted by a jury Friday of misdemeanor battery and child molestation charges.

Dajamah Adonay Blevins, 27, faces a year and six months in jail when he is sentenced Sept. 19, said Deputy District Attorney Casey French. The jury acquitted him of a misdemeanor false imprisonment charge.

Blevins was taken into custody June 3 after a Metropolitan Transit System security officer recognized him as matching the description of the suspect in the May 28 sexual assault, according to National City police.

The 17-year-old victim told investigators the perpetrator boarded the MTS vehicle at a bus stop on 24th Street, then sat next to her and groped her.

When the teen tried to move away, he blocked her way and continued assaulting her, asking her age while he did so and telling her he was 24 years old, said NCPD Sgt. Alex Hernandez.

After the bus stopped at 30th Street and Highland Avenue, the victim reported the crime to the driver, who chased the assailant off the bus.

A security camera captured images of the man, and police distributed them via San Diego County Crime Stoppers fliers.
