A raid on a Mangilao home led officers to evidence needed to arrest a man involved in a sexual assault case.

The case was handled by GPD’s Domestic Response Team (or DART) officers who entered the home of 63-year-old Fred Francisco Blas Sr. on Dec. 17. They were following up on a criminal sexual conduct complaint.

Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao says they seized evidence from Blas’ home related to the investigation.

Blas was also located at the home and taken to GPD headquarters for questioning.

A complaint states that Blas made a woman smoke marijuana and then told her he was feeling lonely. The victim told police that the marijuana cigarette made her feel numb and dizzy. She attempted to fight off Blas but was unable to because she was numb.

The complaint states that Blas had sexual intercourse with the victim.

Upon questioning, Blas told police that he believed the sexual acts were consensual.

Blas was booked and confined on charges of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
