The detective who staked out and arrested Jayson Song took the stand today and testified about what they found in the truck which was used in the alleged kidnapping and where the rape of the victim occurred.
Domestic Assault and Response Team detective Joel Terlaje began the search for Jayson Song on Nov. 28, 2016. As part of the investigation, Terlaje staked out Song’s Jonestown residence in Tamuning.
Officer Terlaje testified that it was several days later that GPD located the truck at Song’s home and with a search warrant, authorities gained access to the vehicle.
Police noted that there was a red knife with a 3-inch blade inside the truck. As the government showed the knife to the defense, Song spoke up asking the prosecuting attorney Lenny Rapadas “can we see the blade to see if it is serrated or not?” That request went seemingly unheard.
But in cross-examination, defense attorney Clyde Lemons made it a point to stress that the blade found was not orange or black as the victim described, further indicating that marking on the blade indicate that it is a pear knife.
Because the case also involves the allegation that Song forced the minor victim to smoke meth in the truck, Lemons asked Terlaje if any drugs were found in the vehicle. He also asked if an improvised pipe found on Song’s person was linked back to the incident.
Terlaje responded no to both questions. Trial continues tomorrow.
