San Luis Obispo resident says alleged rapist made threat

The San Luis Obispo woman allegedly raped by a teenager told detectives that her attacker forced her compliance by threatening to kill her if she didn’t stop screaming, saying he had killed before, police say in a search warrant request filed in Superior Court.

The document says the woman told police that she woke up about 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 17 to find a man in her apartment off Murray and Casa Streets near Cal Poly, and started screaming.

“(The woman) began to scream for help but was told by the suspect she had to stop screaming or he would kill her,” according to the warrant request filed by the San Luis Obispo Police Department. “The suspect told (the woman) he had killed before.”

The warrant also states that the attacker then forced her into sexual acts, though she had begged him not to, she told police.

She identified her alleged attacker, Oillie Rayshawn Tinoco, 16, in a police lineup, according to the warrant.

He was age 15 at the time of his arrest. Tinoco remains in custody at the county Juvenile Services Center.

He has pleaded not guilty to charges of rape, oral copulation, sexual penetration, burglary, robbery and related enhancements that would strengthen his penalty if he’s convicted.

Tinoco is scheduled to appear before San Luis Obispo Superior Court Judge Michael Duffy for a pre-preliminary hearing at 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

His local attorney, Linden Mackaoui, didn’t respond to requests for comment this week.

The warrant request does not state the woman’s name, which authorities won’t disclose because she is the purported victim of a sex crime.

It went on to describe how the woman told police that the man in her home also took her cell phone and laptop computer, and warned her not to tell anyone what happened.

Police conducted a rape examination of the woman after she ran to a friend’s house and reported the incident, according to the warrant.

Police said that Tinoco is also a suspect in a residential burglary in San Luis Obispo on Aug. 27 based on fingerprint evidence. That, authorities said, led police to suspect he might be involved with the alleged rape.

Though he initially denied his involvement, later under questioning, Tinoco admitted that he had attacked the woman, according to the warrant.

Tinoco is being tried as an adult under provisions of Proposition 21, approved by California voters in 2000. That law requires adult trials for juveniles 14 or older charged with murder or certain sex offenses.
