The victim of an attempted rape is safe Friday morning after she escapes her alleged attacker.
Santa Maria Police responded to a disturbance call near 1000 West Harding around 3:30 a.m. Friday.
There, they found the partially clothed victim, who said she had accepted a ride from a man and then passed out in his car from drinking.
According to the victim, she woke up to 25-year-old David Mansano Cervantez making unwelcome sexual advances.
When she tried to escape, she says the suspect ripped off some of her clothing.
With aid from a police dog, officers were able to find Cervantez and he was taken into custody.
