Vallejo Man Arrested, Faces Kidnapping and Rape Charges After Daylight AssaultSource: Vallejo Police Department

The Vallejo community is still reeling from a recent crime that shook the 500 block of Georgia Street. Authorities arrested Jashawn Germany in connection with a heinous burglary and sexual assault that took place in broad daylight on March 31, the Vallejo Police Department reported. The terrifying event unfolded early in the morning when an uninvited male intruder not only invaded a business but also restrained and assaulted the woman present at the scene.

Initially pursued with fervor while the suspect was at large, Germany was apprehended on April 4 on an unrelated parole warrant before being linked to the assault. On April 19, he faced additional charges of kidnapping and rape following an extensive police investigation bolstered by community tips, according to a Hoodline report. Prior to the arrest, the Vallejo PD had shared photographs of the suspect, urging the public to aid in his identification.

Germany, now being held at Solano County Jail, was identified after investigators, particularly Detectives Bradley Phillips and Jarrett Tonn, diligently combed through the evidence with help from locals. Authorities originally emphasized that the attack seemed to be an isolated event with no prior connection between the victim and the assailant. "We are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect depicted in the attached photographs so that we can arrest him for these crimes," a statement from Vallejo PD obtained by Hoodline read before the arrest took place.

Sticking closely to the facts and mindful of the ongoing legal process, the department has refrained from further comment about the sensitive case.
