San Bernardino Man Arrested for Rape, DNA Connected Him to Unsolved Rape

SAN BERNARDINO, Ca. – A San Bernardino man was arrested for the rape of a woman on June 10, 2020.

The female victim said that the suspect was driving a silver Chevrolet Malibu when he approached her to see if she needed a ride. The suspect, now identified as Pablito Moreno, 43, of San Bernardino, took the woman to an undisclosed location and raped her. The woman said that that was the second time she was raped by Moreno this year. Police began looking for the suspect vehicle and found a matching vehicle nearby.  The victim positively identified Moreno as the suspect. Moreno was arrested without incident.

Police officials said that Moreno’s DNA matched an unsolved rape from July 7, 2018, in the City of San Bernardino. In addition to that case, Rialto Police are also investigating Moreno for two unsolved rape cases on October 29th and October 30, 2018. From what authorities know, Moreno targets women who appear to be transient. He often wore a yellow traffic vest and was armed with a knife. Moreno remains in custody and is being held in lieu of $1.1 million.

Authorities are asking for any other victims to come forward by calling Investigator G. West at 909-384-5621 or email
