Two suspects arrested following robbery in La Jolla area

By City News Service

A man accused of fondling a 22-year-old woman as she slept in her La Jolla home is expected to be arraigned on burglary and sexual assault charges next week, authorities said Thursday.

Bryan Patrick Silva, 20, was one of two young men arrested in connection with the break-in on Westbourne Street early Wednesday morning, according to San Diego police.

Silva bailed out of custody last night and was given a notice to return to court Aug. 18, said Steve Walker of the District Attorney’s Office.

Silva and 21-year-old Xavzier Pernell Paschal were arrested after the 4 a.m. break-in, police said.

Paschal remains in custody and is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday. Police indicated only Silva, and not Paschal, would be charged with sexual assault allegations.

The defendants allegedly were in possession of valuables taken from the residence when they were taken into custody a short distance from the home, police said.

According to San Diego police Lt. Rick O’Hanlon, the victims were socializing on the beach near their residence Tuesday evening when the suspects happened by and joined them for a time.

The victims eventually went home, leaving Paschal and Silva behind, O’Hanlon said.

About 4 a.m. one of the residents was awakened in his bedroom by Paschal, who fled when challenged about his presence, O’Hanlon said. The resident gave chase, noticing as he did that Silva also was in the home. Both suspects ran out, got into a car and drove off, the lieutenant said.

One of the residents, a 22-year-old woman, then told her roommates that she woke up to find Silva in her room, fondling her, according to police. The assailant ran off when she screamed, the woman said.

The victims called the police, and responding officers spotted a car matching the description of the burglars’ getaway car in the neighborhood, pulled it over and took Paschal and Silva into custody.
