Billy Dewayne Anderson - Repeat Sex Offender - Child Rapist now attacking women

San Luis Obispo police arrest a man accused of breaking into an apartment and sexually assaulting two women.

The incident happened in the 1100 block of Leff Street in San Luis Obispo early Tuesday morning. Police said it's possible the man was in the apartment for close to four hours.

San Luis Obispo Police Lieutenant Bill Proll said, "The whole city would have been scared had we not caught this guy today."

What was going to be a quiet night turned into a nightmare for two women in a San Luis Obispo neighborhood. Early Tuesday morning, they heard noises in their apartment, but thought nothing of it. Then at 4:00 a.m., one of the women awoke to find a naked man standing over her. The man brutally attacked her and tried to force himself on her.

"He was probably inside, not the bedrooms but the living area of this apartment for three to four hours," said Proll.

Once the attack happened, the woman screamed and her roommate came to her aid, but then the man attacked the roommate in the same manner. A struggle ensued and the girls locked themselves in different rooms.

One woman climbed out of a window and called the police. She told officers what happened and described the man as having a bushy reddish brown goatee. When officers arrived at the home, the man was gone, and so was a laptop computer and purse.

One neighbor Jared Kolar said, "Kind of scary."

Police stormed the neighborhood and soon they found the stolen purse in a trash can at the train station. They also found their suspect sitting on a bench, now clean-shaven. Officers arrested 30-year-old Billy Anderson, a registered sex offender in Washington state.

Anderson's crime in Washington, raping a child, leaving neighbors on edge.

An unnamed neighbor said, "Just the fact that having kids, and I know I'm not the only one in this neighborhood, is even worse."

Anderson is being held in San Luis Obispo County Jail where he's charged with sexual assault and burglary. Other charges for failure to register as a sex offender are pending. His bail is set at $1 million.
