PRESS RELEASE: Turlock Police Detectives Arrest Serial Rapist https://local.nixle.com/alert/8957964/  #turlock #turlockpolice #turlockpd

Posted on Twitter 12 days ago

PRESS RELEASE: Turlock Police Detectives Arrest Serial Rapist Turlock, California. € On June 15, 2021, a homeless female adult reported to the Turlock Police Department that the previous evening she was picked up on Geer Road by a Hispanic male adult she described as 6 feet tall and about 250 pounds. He was driving a dark SUV. The suspect offered her a ride and told her he would €help her out.€ After initially declining, the victim consented to the ride as the suspect was persistent. Instead of taking her to where she was going, he drove behind a closed business and raped her by force. The victim cooperated with the investigation and consented to a medical sexual assault investigation, where biological evidence was located. On Monday, August 30, 2021, Turlock Police Detectives received notification of a DNA match from the June 14, 2021, rape. The DNA was matched to Joseph Frank Pineda Pimentel, 37 years old, from Denair. They were also notified the DNA matched two other unsolved sexual assaults in two other counties. The circumstances in all three were very similar. Detectives also learned Pineda's DNA record was from the military in 2009, where he had been arrested and charged with rape. That case was ultimately dismissed. Detectives, Special Investigations Unit, and the Community and Crime Information Analyst steadily worked the next days on the investigation ultimately leading to an arrest warrant for Pineda Pimentel. On Thursday, September 2, 2021, Investigators were able to identify Pineda Pimentel's general location in south Modesto. Detectives converged on the area and located Pineda Pimentel. He was arrested without incident. At the time of the stop, he had just picked up a homeless female adult whom he had offered a ride and something to eat. The female stated she had met him the day before, but did not know him beyond his first name. Pineda Pimentel was booked into Stanislaus County Jail on the charge of Rape by Force or Fear. He is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Detectives believe there may be additional victims in the Central Valley and Foothills areas. Detectives urge them to come forward. They ask homeless resource groups to encourage those they assist in the homeless population to report any crime that occurs to them. Those crimes should be reported to the law enforcement agency where the crimes occurred. The Turlock Police Department asks that anyone with information regarding this incident, to call Detective Tim Redd at (209) 664-7325. You can also contact the Turlock Police Department's Tip Line at (209) 668-5550 extension 6780 or email at tpdtipline@turlock.ca.us. The Turlock Police Department is an active participant in the Crime Stoppers Program. Callers can leave an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 and may be eligible for a cash reward.

PRESS RELEASE: Turlock Police Department Holding DUI Checkpoint September 4, 2021 Turlock, California. € The Turlock Police Department will hold a DUI Checkpoint September 4th from 10:00 PM until 1:30 AM at an undisclosed location within Turlock city limits. Checkpoint locations are chosen based on a history of DUI crashes and arrests. The primary purpose of checkpoints is not to make arrests, but to promote public safety by deterring drivers from driving impaired. During the checkpoint, officers will look for signs that drivers are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. The Turlock Police Department is committed to keeping the traveling public safe. €The safety of our community is and always will be our mission,€ Sergeant David Hall said. €We are looking for impaired drivers because driving under the influence is dangerous and puts others on the road at risk.€ The Turlock Police Department reminds the public that impaired driving is not just from alcohol. Some prescription medications or over-the-counter drugs may interfere with driving. Always follow directions for use and read warning labels about driving or €operating heavy machinery,€ which includes driving a car. While medicinal and recreational marijuana are legal, driving under the influence of marijuana is illegal. If you plan on drinking or taking medications that may impact your ability to drive safely, plan on staying at home. Drivers charged with a first-time DUI face an average of $13,500 in fines and penalties, as well as a suspended license. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Turlock Police Department is an active participant in the Crime Stoppers Program. Callers can leave an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 and may be eligible for a cash reward.

PRESS RELEASE: September is Pedestrian Safety Month: Be Predictable, Look Out for One Another As part of Pedestrian Safety Month, the Turlock Police Department is supporting efforts throughout September to improve pedestrian safety and help reduce crashes and injuries. Pedestrians are more and more at risk on the road. Based on data from the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), 2020 had the largest ever annual increase, 21 percent, in the rate at which drivers struck and killed pedestrians. In California, pedestrian deaths accounted for 27 percent of all traffic-related deaths in 2019. €It's simple: slow down and stop for pedestrians. They have the same rights to the road as everyone else,€ Turlock Police Department Sergeant David Hall said. €If you're walking, be mindful of vehicle traffic and be predictable. We should all be looking out for one another.€ For the safety of everyone walking or driving, the Turlock Police Department will have additional officers on patrol throughout September specifically looking for California Vehicle Code (CVC) violations pertaining to drivers and pedestrians. These violations include right-of-way at crosswalks, illegal turns and not stopping for signs or signals (e.g., right turn on red or red light running) and speeding. The Turlock Police Department offers steps drivers and pedestrians can take to greatly reduce the risk of getting injured or in a crash, including staying off the phone when behind the wheel or walking: Pedestrians - Be predictable. Use crosswalks. Take notice of approaching vehicles and practice due care. - Do not walk or run into the path of a vehicle. No vehicle can stop instantly. At 30 m.p.h., a diver needs at least 90 feet to stop. - Be visible. Make it easy for drivers to see you € wear light colors, reflective material and carry a flashlight, particularly at dawn, dusk or at night. - Be extra careful crossing streets or entering crosswalks at night when it is harder to see, or when crossing busier streets with more lanes and higher speed limits. Drivers" - Follow the speed limit and slow down at intersections. Be prepared to stop for pedestrians at marked and unmarked crosswalks. - Avoid blocking crosswalks while waiting to make a right-hand turn. - Never drive impaired. Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The Turlock Police Department is an active participant in the Crime Stoppers Program. Callers can leave an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 and may be eligible for a cash reward.
