A self-proclaimed “secret admirer” was arrested early Thursday in Golden Gate after deputies saw him looking over a woman’s fence.
Around 4 a.m. Tuesday, the victim said she noticed her bedroom window’s screen had been cut and a note had been tucked into the blinds. The note was from a secret admirer who said he wanted to get to know her but didn’t want her to tell anyone about the note. He said he would be back to find out what her answer was.
The note concluded with the admirer saying he worked during the day and could only talk Wednesday between 11 p.m. and midnight, according to an arrest report.
On Wednesday at 11:57 p.m., detectives saw a man peeking over the fence behind the victim’s home.
Lucino Rocha-Ramos, 35, told deputies he was not going to harm the victim and said he lived behind her with his wife and two kids. Asked how his wife would respond, he said he was “going to have to lie to her and make up a story about looking in the garden or something.”
Rocha-Ramos, of the 5200 block of Coronado Parkway, faces a felony charge of burglary of an occupied dwelling and a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief.
