Ubaldo De La Cruz-Gonzalez

Santa Barbara police arrested two men Friday morning on multiple felony charges stemming from the alleged sexual assault of a 28-year-old woman last October. According to police department spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood, suspects Ubaldo De La Cruz-Gonzalez, 29, and Carlos Rojas-Villafana, 43, live in the same house on the 200 block of N. Milpas Street.

At around 10:00 p.m. on October 23, Harwood said, the victim and a friend went to the suspects’ house to drink beers. A short while later, the friend abruptly left, leaving the victim alone with the two men. When she tried to leave the home at around 10:40 p.m., Harwood said, the pair prevented her from doing so and then “forcefully and repeatedly sexually assaulted” her until 7 a.m. the next morning. “The victim was released when she convinced De La Cruz-Gonzalez that she needed to be at work that morning,” Harwood said.

Three hours later, the victim and an advocate from the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center reported the assault to police. After an investigation — which included interviews, the collection of evidence, a forensic medical examination of the victim, and surveillance — De La Cruz-Gonzalez and Rojas-Villafana were identified. They were arrested Friday morning as they were detailing a car. They’re both being held in County Jail on $100,000 bail.

Both these guys are obviously sick in the head & most definitely look like complete psychos. This type of crime is exactly why I don't trust anybody. You never know what strangers are capable of.

I'm sure these two are here in America illegally, so deport these two scum bags! Santa Barbara should be take on some of the policies of Maricopa County. And where ever these to scums worked at, they should check that place of employment to see who else is working there with fraudulent paperwork, and fine that establishment!

billclausen: "Not with the drought."

Alright you 2, enough of the Draxor influenced postings! The Drax is the messiah of prognostication, I patiently await his verdict.
I think djhecktik hits it on the head that these 2 guys are probably not right in the head, but I won't go as far as to call them psychos. They look more like WATERHEADS.
1123inde, here's the problem: If you go after guys like this, who is going to pick your fruits and vegetables, empty your office trash, clean the gym you attend, detail your ride, basically all the jobs some "American" folks won't do because it is beneath them?
These guys ARE waterhead scumbags and I hope they get the book thrown at them over and over and over.

The details as to age aren't all that relevant really since rape is evil, period, in and of itself, whether a woman is old, young, tall, short, whatever. Without attempting to overreach here and with a respect to the time-tested innocent until proved guilty, oughtn't this felony be tabled at UN level as a crime against humankind? On a global level, this abhorrent practice seems to be picking up a monkey see, monkey do following, from such disparate cultures as India to South Africa. Time to shoot a message over the bow of any ship carrying this type of baggage? VERBOTEN!!! This post is not an attempt at grandstanding or being clever in any way.

@blahblahmoreblah,

you're right, some "Americans" wont do those jobs, and some "Americans" will do them. I rather go after guys like this and deport them all! Even if it means that I have to pick my own fruits & vegetables, and I already throw out my own office trash and i clean the gym equipment after i use it. Then to let scum like this live here illegally and rape women!

Not sure why these people are assumed to be here illegally, because of their surname, or their crime?

1123inde- As a matter of fact the fields are hiring right now, it is never too late to pick up a job in agriculture, and you can check your co-workers legal/illegal status while you are at it.

@AZ2SB i don't see your point because i never said i was in need of a employment! Thank God i was blessed with a good career that i worked hard to obtain. But if my employment did come to a end, i would seek employment where ever there is a need, even if it where in agriculture. And i can bet one of these two scums does not have the proper documentation to be here in the US(and i will call the county jail to see if the have a ICE hold on them to prove me correct). And I can bet it would be the same result if authorities went down to the field to check the legal status of the employees. But if me getting a job in agriculture meant women would stop being rapped by illegal or legal scums like this, i would do it in a hear beat! Why are you so denfensive to the truth, one can only assume these scums are you family.

Or...maybe they are just bad people with no morals.
Maybe they live by a different code.

@inde- Wow, you are good. Not!!!! Actually the fields do require proper documentation, but restaurants and other service jobs don't.

@AZ2SB I never said the "fields" did no require proper documentation, all businesses require proper documentation, even restaurants! Some business just do not care about documentation, but that is not the point i was trying to prove. And I still do not see what point you are trying to prove! And i did call the county jail and these scum bags you are defending do have a ICE hold on them, which means they do not have the proper documentation, and that was the point i was trying to prove! I can tell you just write to write so there for I will not reply to your foolish remarks. Come up with better arguments!

They should be deported--to Canada. It should be our revenge for them infecting America with Justin Bieber. To blahblahblah, I apologize on behalf of AZ and myself, we will bow to the great Draxor--the King of insanity.

Blahblahblabll..You may have to exhibit a lot of patience, as these days, Draxor is a man of few words.

Like the wind, Draxor is not seen yet felt, like the sun, he not heard, yet felt. Parsimonious he is with his verbiage, economical with his sage advice, we sit, waiting to savor the dispensation of his wit, yet we are willing to do so for it is he who is an island of reason in a world of insanity.

Draxor oh Draxon man of the world.
We wait for your wisdom, slowly unfurled
Your minions await,
as they meditate,
on your words. which over time, they've squirelled.
