Washington sheriff says deputy stopped rape in progress after woman called 911 from cell phone

CARLOS ENRIQUE ALEGRIA

A woman’s quick action to turn on her cell phone when she began feeling uneasy in an acquaintance’s car early Thursday allowed law enforcement to interrupt a sexual assault on her, according to court documents. 

Carlos Enrique Alegria, 27, 204 Wilson Ave., was literally pulled off the woman by Washington County Deputy Darrell Collins. He said Alegria had taken off the victim’s pants and had his own unzipped and unbuttoned.

 The call to 911 came in at 4 a.m. Dispatchers apparently heard what was happening and dispatched officers to the location.
