BLTYHE - Blythe Police arrested and charged a local man with attempted rape, false imprisonment, terrorist threats and battery after he was alleged to have attacked a woman in his home the evening of March 2. Martin Suro Jr., 23, was booked at the Blythe Jail on the charges

Police were called to a home in the 300 block of South Fourth Street in Blythe just after 9 p.m. in reference to an attempted sexual assault. Officers learned that earlier in the evening the victim had gone to the residence of Suro Jr., a longtime friend, to work on school work.

As the victim was leaving, Suro Jr. unexpectedly assaulted her with an electric "stun gun." The victim attempted to fight the suspect off but was choked almost to unconsciousness. Suro Jr. repeatedly assaulted the victim by hitting her and assaulting with the "stun gun."

Investigators obtained a search warrant for Suro Jr.'s residence and during the service of the search warrant, Suro Jr. was arrested. A search of the residence was conducted, and various items of evidence were seized.

Anyone with information regarding this case, or any other crime, is urged to contact the Blythe Police Department at 922-6111 or they can give their information anonymously by calling Crime Stop at 921-CARE (2273) or by email at blythepd@cityofblythe.ca.gov.

If he had succeeded in knocking the victim out. Would the victim still be around to file charges? What was the thought process here if any? That the victim would forget or pretend nothing happen? I hope he is not let go due to the sequestered in the Obama administration.
