El Cajon Police have arrested a man suspected of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in the city's commercial district Monday morning.
The teenager told police a man who appeared to be about 20 years old forced her into a car in or near the 1100 block of East Main Street in El Cajon about 9 a.m., Lt. Steve Shakowski said. According to the girl, the kidnapper had a gun in the car and drove a short distance before pulling over in an alley and sexually assaulted her before letting her go, Shakowski said.
A short time later, police were called to a report of a stolen car about a mile from the assault scene. Officers determined the vehicle description matched that of the one used in the assault. Detectives were able to identify the suspect in the car theft as 27-year-old Willie Williams. Police say the victim identified Williams as her attacker.
Williams was arrested at a relative's house in San Diego. He was booked into San Diego County Jail for numerous charges, including kidnapping for the purpose of sexual assault and assault with a deadly weapon.
