Thomas Ramirez - Repeat Sex Offender - Restroom Predator

A registered sex offender tried to rape a woman in a San Bernardino park bathroom Monday, but the woman fought back, scaring off the man.

San Bernardino police said Thomas Ramirez, 35, who had recently been released from prison, was captured and arrested. Police booked him into West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.

Ramirez approached the woman in one of the restrooms at Perris Hill Park at 1001 E. Highland Ave. and tried to rape her, police said. She fought back, causing the man to flee.

Police came to the park at 3:15 p.m. and found Ramirez nearby.

"25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years"
.........Sarah Tofte

"On average most sex offenders are never caught again for a new sex offense, after five years, between 10 and 15 percent of sex offenders are detected, often convicted, of committing a new sex offense. If you follow them for ten years the rates go up somewhat, if you follow them as long as we’ve been able to follow them, which is about 20 years, the rates go up to somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the total sample will eventually be caught for a new sex offense."
