Man wanted for criminal sexual conduct still not caught

Guam - Nearly one month has passed and a man wanted by police for two separate criminal sexual conduct cases has yet to be apprehended.

"On December 17, 2014 two CSC complaints, two criminal sexual conduct complaints were taken by the Tumon Precinct Command regarding Mr. [James] Corpuz who was implicated as the suspect in question and the person of interest," explained Guam Crimestoppers coordinator Officer Paul Tapao, 34-year-old James Nicholas Corpuz appears to be on the run.

"Prior to that the officers proceeded in trying to locate Mr. Corpuz but were unsuccessful at that time. We knew that he was on the run because he never reported back to his residence 0123 and he never made contact with the family members of his residence," Officer Tapao added.

And while he's running from the law, this wouldn't be his first run-in with the law.

Back in November 2013, Corpuz was charged with second degree criminal sexual conduct as a first degree felony. The magistrate's complaint indicates the victim was only 13-years-old when she reports Corpuz placed his hand between her legs as she waited outside her friend's house.

When Corpuz asked if he could touch her again, the female minor said no. When interviewed by police, the girl stated she was afraid to tell anyone because she feared the defendant's girlfriend would retaliate.

For the allegations Corpuz faces today, he could face serious jail time as well as those hindering his arrest. "He's been on the run and we know he's been evading officers and we want to remind the community if you're aiding Mr. Corpuz in any way you can be charged in court you can be charged in the offense of aiding and abetting a wanted fugitive," he added.

Corpuz stands at 5'8" tall and weighs 170 pounds. He was last seen operating his 1994 Toyota Camry with plates TM-1630.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, you're urged to call Guam Crimestoppers. "Our Criminal Investigation Division in collaboration with the Guam Crimestoppers and other agencies are helping in locating Mr. Corpuz. We're asking the community should they have any information as to his whereabouts to please come forward. They can call GPD at 475-8615/6/7 or you can call Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357)," Tapao said.
