HESPERIA, Calif. – A Hesperia tattoo artist who was accused of raping at least two women pleaded no contest late last month.
The investigation started when a 19-year-old woman reported on May 31, 2017, that Henry Richard Camarena Jr., 43, of Hesperia and owner of Team Art Collective Tattoo sexually assaulted her. The woman said that she was receiving a tattoo from Camarena when the sexual assault took place. Authorities said that the woman was unconscious at the time of the rape.
As a result of the information received, detectives searched the tattoo shop and collected evidence, leading to the arrest of Camarena. Camarena was located at a home in the 15200 block of Ramona Boulevard in the City of Baldwin Park where he was taken into custody and booked for the rape of an incapacitated person. In September 2017, a second victim reported a rape that occurred in August 2016.
Anna Parker, of Victor Valley Court Updates, reported, that on April 25, 2019, Henry Camarena pleaded no contest to the Felony charge of Rape of a Victim Unconscious Of The Nature of the Act and Sexual Battery. Camarena is scheduled to return to the Victorville Superior Court on June 18, 2019, for sentencing.
