As officers were dispatched, the victim locked herself in her bedroom. Investigators believe the suspect forced open the kitchen window, climbed into the apartment, and then forced open the bedroom door as the victim was talking to the police dispatcher. The victim began fighting the suspect, who had opened his pants and was attempting to assault the victim. The victim's 18-month old child was nearby. As officers arrived they heard the victim struggling with the suspect and calling for help. Officers kicked in the apartment door and tackled the suspect, who was kneeling over the victim. The victim was not seriously injured.
Calix-Mejia will be booked into the Justice Center Jail and his photograph will be available, after he completes the booking process. Arraignment will be scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on August 16, 2002.
