ARREST MADE IN KIDNAPPING AND SEXUAL ABUSE CASE

On Friday, March 10, 2023, the victim in the case was approached by her estranged husband, later identified as 41-year-old Samuel Garcia-Gutierrez. Garcia-Gutierrez entered the victim’s vehicle, presented a firearm and forced the victim to drive to his residence with him. Garcia-Gutierrez kept her there against her will for several hours and sexually assaulted her. The victim eventually was able to leave Garcia-Gutierrez’s residence and was taken to safety by family members who contacted the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives from the Sheriff’s Office, Sexual and Elder Abuse Bureau (SEAB) took over the investigation and a search warrant for Garcia-Gutierrez’s residence was obtained. In the morning hours of Saturday, March 11, 2023, with the assistance of the Sacramento Sheriff’s Office Special Enforcement Detail (SED), the search warrant was served at the residence and Garcia-Gutierrez was taken into custody without incident at that location. Evidence was located inside the residence during the search which corroborated the victim’s statement to detectives.

Garcia-Gutierrez was subsequently transported to the Sacramento County Main Jail, where he was booked for PC 209 (Kidnapping with the Intent to Commit Rape); PC 236 (False Imprisonment); PC 245(a)(2) (Assault with a Firearm); PC 261(a)(2) (Rape by Means of Force, Violence, Duress Menace, or Fear) amongst other charges.
