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

Article comment by: Are you Kidding me!

Are you kidding me!! I am so tired of hearing people complain about how bad Blythe is and how they are glad they moved or are about to move. I agree there has been more crimes committed than before but the (deleted) that happens here is nothing compared to other cities, so for all those people who are glad they got their family's out of this town should give themselves a pad on the back for moving their family's places were crime committed in one day in other cities, is the total amount of crimes committed in blythe for a year. So re-think how bad you think Blythe is cuz it's nothing compared to other cities. Oh and enough about how meth is the cause of everything cuz if you haven't noticed it's everywhere unfortunately.

I remember as a kid, we'd leave our doors unlocked and windows open (even when we went to bed) as well as keys in the ignition. But that all changed when Charlie Manson made headlines. After that everything was locked up tight as a drum.Nowadays, I lock everything and have the alarms on whether I'm home or away. Too many crooks and crazies out there.

Poor woman. It was probably like waking up next to Reverend Jim Ignatowski for her!

I agree with Elsa, the country as a whole is going down the tubes. Meth is everywhere, crime rates are rising with the bad economy that can only get worse, we are repairing and building Mosques in the east while were taking God out of our schools. Now they say we have too many guns so they want to take away your last line of defense while the lawmakers keep there security. Call 911 they say? Good luck with that!

Article comment by: OK! JUST A THOUGHT!

okay see everybody is quick to point fingers but if you read the article carefully you can see that the guy was arrested simply because of his clothing discription honestly "IF THE WOMAN" didnt know who the person was then how are they automatically gonna asume that it was this guy? because he maybe happend to be in that area matching the discription she gave them come on think about how many people now a days can actually match a description like that. I personally think that there could possibly be a little more to this situation than us readers know. I think he might have a winning chance in court. "ONLY GOD KNOWS" HAVE A BLESSED DAY!

Most of the riffraff started coming in the late 1970's. Most immigrated from out west. What we have here is mostly 2nd or 3rd generation. Like it or not most are inter-bred in our community, and are now part of us. Now that's funny. Know what I mean Vern? Maybe the smart ones are the females that leave town to find better work and mates. The gene pool is mighty shallow here. I guess it's a good thing I did my spawning way back then, Or maybe not to some of you. To the point, it's going to get much worst than it is now. I said once, and I will say it again.

Article comment by: C'mon, Folks!

It's not JUST Blythe. We say that because we are close to it. Get our heads up out of the sand, and get off your iPods, cell phone games,television trash, etc., and educate yourselves. It's hard to do here, as Enterprise divorced us, but where there is a will, there is a way. We've all been told, but we tend to think, "That doesn't mean me," "That can't be true in Blythe," and we assume it only happens somewhere else. It does happen somewhere else, because people there sat on their hands, stuck their heads in the sand, or elsewhere, and that way they didn't have to see reality. The more complacent we are, the more the City Council situation and the hospital situation, and other things are the breeding groups for the trash. Quit blaming the prisons those guys are locked up. WE must organize ourselves, quit our clever little repartees, and get active. At the same time, though, we must ALL quit following our government practices, and stop pointing our fingers at somebody else. THAT is not working. We all could use some lessons in identifying self-serving people who deal mostly in cow pies.

Meth, that is what is wrong with Blythe. Come on in a town this size, the cops should be able to figure out whats going on. Why don't they??Maybe they don't want to, maybe its their job security.But seriously Blythe does suck, there are no jobs the only way to make money is meth.So people sell meth and the buyers go crazy, because thats what meth does, crime rate goes up. cops have jobs yea! Only the meth dealers and the cops have jobs. Change the name of Blythe to Methythe, there thats more fitting for this meth haven we all live in.

It's not just Blythe, it's not just the entire country, it's the entire world and it's only getting worse, the only thing we can do is learn what God requires of us and obey, it serves as a protection and brings hope and peace of mind when there is peace and hope no where else.

Article comment by: Open Door Really?

There once was a time many years ago hardly anyone locked their door, it wasn't necessary but with the prisons came the crime and the need to lock your doors. No way would I stay in my home day or night without my doors secure, including a dead bolt. That and my 38 I feel somewhat safe.

Article comment by: What is Wrong with Blythe

Everyday new headlines of corrupt city councils, hospital boards, sue happy doctors, drug busts, bumbling cops and their guns, and then two or three mug shots of nut cases like this guy. What is wrong with this place? Or is the entire country as crazy or is it just Blythe.
To all with kids in this town, do you really want this town to be the place where your kids are raised in? What are the lessons they are learning that they will carry forward in life to their children?
