‘I Could Have Been Shot.” Man Mistaken for Police Sketch of Predator Gets Beaten Up

'I Could Have Been Shot." Man Mistaken for Police Sketch of Predator Gets Beaten Up

A man was left beaten in the middle of the road after an attacker mistook him for police sketch of a child predator, the man said Friday.

Kevin Martin pleaded for help on social media after people have mistaken him — more than once — for the person drawn in a sketch released by Corona police.

“It could have been worse. I could have been shot,” Martin said.

Martin said the brutal attack happened around 11:15 p.m. Thursday near a Norco In N Out on Hamner Avenue.

He was inside a bar when he said a man approached him and asked him to have a chat outside.

When they got outside, another man pulled out a cellphone and showed him a composite sketch from Corona police of a child annoyance suspect.

“And he said.. That’s you isn’t it? And I go no that’s not me,” Martin said.

He said he had a feeling something bad was about to happen so he quickly grabbed his phone.

“I called 911, I put the phone in my pocket, and they heard everything,” he said.

He said one of the men got aggressive.

“He says he has a daughter of his own and he would kill people like me that do that. I knew right there I’m in trouble,” he said.

Martin alleged the man grabbed him by the neck, so he ran down Hamner Avenue to get away. But the attacker caught up to him at the center divider and started punching him, he said.

“And I said, you’re going to kill me if you hit me one more time the way you’re doing, you’re going to kill me,” Martin said.

Fortunately two witnesses scared the attacker off. Chris Ralph Arispe, 44, was arrested on suspicion of battery, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said.

Corona police detectives confirmed Martin was ruled out as a suspect related to the sketch.

Martin posted a heartfelt message to his 70,000 followers on his Facebook page, pleading for help so he isn’t attacked again.

He also has this advice for others.

“Don’t be a vigilante,” he said.

NBCLA reached out to Arispe for comment, but he has not responded.

Video Captures Woman Fighting Off Rape Attempt, Police Release Sketch


What to Know

  • Police release a sketch illustration of a man accused of attempting to rape an 18-year-old woman on Feb. 16.

  • The man police seek is described as a 30 to 40-year-old man, 5 feet 7 inches, 190 pounds and was seen wearing a long sleeve blue shirt.

  • The victim suffered minor injuries, but police say she’s doing better and helping with the investigation.

A man was caught on video attempting to rape an 18-year-old woman in El Monte on Feb. 16, and police Tuesday released a sketch of the attacker.

The man is described as a 30 to 40-year-old man, 5 feet 7 inches tall, 190 pounds and last seen wearing a long sleeve blue shirt, according to police.

“We would be concerned about this happening to someone else or that the level of violence would increase and again we don’t want anyone, male or female or kids to be at risk at any time,” El Monte Police Department Sgt. Richard Luna said.

A video of the incident was caught on home security cameras.

The woman was walking home from work near the intersections of Tyler Avenue and Brockway Street.

The victim and the attacker cross paths on the sidewalk. The man then turned around and started following the woman before tackling her to the ground.

The man is then seen dragging the woman around the corner out of sight of the businesses and homes in the area.

The woman was able to fight off the man as he tried to sexually assault her, police say.

A camera at a restaurant in front of the sidewalk where the incident occurred caught the man running after the woman. It also filmed what police believe is the white, possibly four-door compact car the the man may have been seen driving away in.

The attacker ran away from the scene when the woman began to scream for help and for neighbors to call 911.

The victim suffered minor injuries, but police say she’s doing better and helping with the investigation.

The crime has put a lot of people on alert in the local community. Residents said they hope the man is caught before someone else is hurt.
