By Captain Brian Bubar, San Pablo Police Department & Scott Alonso, Public Information Officer, Contra Costa County District Attorney
San Pablo Police received information of sexual abuse of a 3-year-old child after the victim reported the conduct to a family member. In turn, San Pablo Police Detectives were called and an investigation ensued. Subsequently Detectives arrested Adalberto Guardado, a 65-year-old resident of San Pablo, on Saturday, September 14th, at his home where the alleged attack occurred.
The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office charged defendant Guardado with two felonies, including the alleged sexual abuse of a minor, Jane Doe. The enhancements allege the defendant assaulted a three-year-old minor girl and befriended her before the alleged assault.
Guardado is set to be arraigned this afternoon at 1:30 p.m. in the Contra Costa County Superior Court in Richmond. The defendant is in custody at the Martinez Detention Facility and is being held without bail.
We will not release how a victim may know a defendant in a sexual assault case as well as the name of a victim to protect their confidentiality.
The investigation is ongoing and active. We are hoping the public may have additional information about the case or defendant. Members of the public with information about the case should call the San Pablo Police Department at 510-215-3150.
The case is assigned to Deputy District Attorney Bryan Tierney with our Office’s Sexual Assault Unit.
