Warrant: Rape suspect tried to grab officer's gun

Posted May 15, 2011

— A Raleigh man being investigated for statutory rape tried to grab an officer's gun as he was being arrested Sunday, according to arrest warrants.

Detectives went to take Sergio Naranjo, 41, into custody after he was accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl on Friday, the warrants state. Naranjo resisted and grabbed an officer's gun with both hands, police said. The officer was not hurt.

Naranjo was charged with assault of a government official and statutory rape when the defendant was at least six years older than the victim.

He was placed in the Wake County jail under a $510,000 secured bond. His first court appearance was set for Monday.

    I'm sure he's left thinking "It seemed like a good idea at the time..."

    Looks like you didn't fully think through your clever little plan, buddy.
