Blythe man walks into unlocked home, climbs into bed with woman
Special to the Times


A Blythe man was charged with burglary and resisting arrest the evening of Dec. 31, after police responded to a residence in the 1400 block of 14th Avenue, in reference to a woman reporting that she had awoken to find an unknown man in her bed.

The responding officer contacted the woman's husband, whom she had also called, and he reported seeing a man matching the description of the suspect walking east on 14th Avenue.

A second officer contacted the suspect, identified as Jorge Cabello Jr., 24, of Blythe, in the 1600 block of 14th Ave. Cabello was agitated and made verbal threats to assault officers, attempting to move toward one of the officers who tired to restrain him. Continuing to resist, Cabello attempted to reach into his front waistband before being tased, which seemed to have no effect on him. Officers were finally able to gain control of Cabello's hands and he was taken into custody.

The woman was contacted and said that she had been alone at her residence, asleep in her bed, when s felt someone enter the bed. Believing it was her husband returning home, she rolled over to talk to him when she saw that it was Cabello, who she does not know. After the confrontation, Cabello exited through the front door. There was no report of Cabello touching or threatening her.

Police said Cabello entered the residence 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," said Blythe Police spokesman Lt. Robert Mathews. "This is not the first case in recent months where an unknown subject entered a residence and caught the victim off guard. The Blythe Police Department reminds everyone to check their doors and windows, and to lock them when they are not in use."

Cabello was booked into the Blythe Jail.

Anyone with information regarding this case 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.

@V. Lara. Thank you. That is where I was going with the disposable kids. Those parents never pay the full price of their actions.

@el pica...are you an Obama supporter? This is what happens when Democrats take over the country. They make it too easy for people to have kids with welfare and free housing. People have no sense of responsibility anymore because we (the taxpayers) are made to support them and their kids.

One thing about a bad town. It's ALWAYS better somewhere else! Yeh, right! When you find that Magic City where rainbows light the streets & there are no bad people, let me know. No one else, just me! Don't want all those "others" moving there and messing it up. I'll hold my breath while you're looking!

@V.L. I too find that Rec-Center is an important part of Blythe it provides a safe environment for the children. but it must not be confused with effective parenting. The same go's for all other Organizations. They can not take the role of family. There are many parents that refuse to do their jobs. So, what happens to them? They get rewarded. How? They get their children taken away. Do you think they care? No. They did not want that child in the first place. So, this mad cycle of having disposable children has to stop. Again that leads us to the home and family. This is a bad example, so please bare-with me. If you have a pet and it gets out and it does something bad. You are held accountable for it's actions. So why can't these same principles be applied here? With some exceptions, you can't paint all families or situations with the stroke of a brush.

@el pica, I agree that families should be the ones to raise their kids with morals and ethics but the problem with some kids is that either they don't have families or the family doesn't care about them. That's where these programs and organizations such as the Rec Center come in. I don't believe that parents should have to resort to physical discipline in order to get make their kids listen. I think that eventually that will lead to feelings of resentment. I never physically disciplined my kid and she has never disrespected me. I believe the key is talking to your kid instead of yelling and giving them respect. I know that not all kids are the same and every parent has their own way of disciplining.

Back in my time it was called disciplining your child. Not beating him or her to a pulp. But to show them right from wrong. Today you speak to them in a loud or strong voice, and it's called child abuse. Then when they get over 12, they know they can get away with doing anything they want. Because the courts have paved their way into this sort of behavior. The thing is we need less of State or Federal interfering into the lives of families. We have go back to the old values, or we risk losing all of our values. In which we are on that road at this time. We all have to start now. Because the next generation will be born Godless and without moral values. You do not need an Organization to raiser your kids or to show them moral values. That's what families are for.

@el pica...Seriously? That sarcastic remark (and lack of grammar) makes me believe that this conversation is futile on your part. Have you volunteered for anything or attempted to help troubled kids? If you have that's great! And, in actuality, it hasn't gotten worse it's gotten better. We need more programs like The Dance Yard for kids to be able to express themselves positively. My kid is 13, good grades, and smart. My nephew is 16, smart, and has no illusions of making horrible choices. The point is, we have to be the positive role models for all the kids in this town. You think this town is bad, try living in Topeka, KS or Pine Bluff, AR. Worst than that, try visiting Papua New Guinea or Juarez, Mexico. I'm sure that will change your entire perspective.

@el pica, of course there are more headlines but obviously the Blythe paper doesn't have enough room. I reiterate, there is crime everywhere!!! Do you read the Press Enterprise? What have you done personally to remedy the situation you believe is so bad? I am so tired of reading and hearing about how bad Blythe is but the majority of people that complain have no clue what the rest of the world is like. Give me a break! If you look at the crime index rate for Blythe, you will see that crime has actually gone down since 1999 with a peak in 2000 and 2001.

People you know that there are other places here on the web to find out what other crimes have been reported to the police, here in Blythe. Many stories that did not make the headlines. Or to say they just make small bi lines and they do not go in-depth in reporting. Some times there over a hundred police reports made in one month. Look and you shall see into how deep, we stand in this pool of (deleted), we call our home town. No lie just look.

Come on people! Doesn't anybody read other newspapers other than the Blythe paper? Doesn't anybody watch the news? There's crime and drugs EVERYWHERE!!!! Why is that so difficult for some of these people to comprehend? Anonymous, you say that only cops have jobs. WOW!!!! If that is not democratic thinking I don't know what is.

What's wrong with this town or a few that make the town look bad? When some mention "headlines" that's just it. That's all people know are the negatives because thats what is chosen to be published. We, just like the staff at PVVT know way more good people than bad. Bad news gets attention that's all. People should judge based on their daily lives and not what they read.
