Man arrested for kidnapping outside Barrigada bakery

Guam - 33-year-old Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is being held on $250,000 cash bail after he allegedly kidnapped a woman outside Crown Bakery in Barrigada on Monday morning. The horrific events were released in a magistate's complaint today.
Court documents state the woman exited the bakery around 5 that morning and got into her vehicle. As she started her car, Camacho, who was in the backseat, allegedly pulled her hair towards the headrest and demanded that she drive or he would kill her. The woman who feared for her life then drove onto Route 10 toward Mangilao. Camacho allegedly repeatedly ordered her not to look at him and that as long as she complied, she would not be killed. She was then told to pull over along Route 10 and get out of the car.
Documents state the woman struggled to get away as Camacho allegedly forced his hands down her shorts. She started running toward Route 10 but Camacho caught up to her when she slipped and fell. He allegedly punched her in the face and pulled her by the hair back to the car, where he cut the seatbelts to tying her wrist and ankles. Camacho then is accused of digitally penetrating her genital area.
When Camacho was finished, he put the victim on the floor of the backseat and asked if she had money. Camacho allegedly took her debit card and ordered her to tell him the pin number. Documents state he handed the card over to another man at an unknown location. Camacho then parked the car in jungle area just 0.2 miles away from his residence and left the victim inside.
She eventually broke free from the restraints and drove to the Guam Police's Dededo Precinct. Camacho was picked up after CID and SWAT served a search warrant at his Yigo residence Thursday morning. He was charged with kidnapping, first and second degree criminal sexual conduct, assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct, terrorizing, second degree robbery, assault and felonious restraint.
GPD spokesperson Office A.J. Balajadia said, "There is an additional charge of resisting arrest because...it's not secret what swats mission is when swat serves a warrant they're not going to tap on the door and ask to come in there's reason to believe that a crime is committed and there's a job to be done and so they're going to get in there and do that job and if that means everyone goes down on the ground they better go down to the ground. We didn't create the situation, the suspect did."
Balajadia says Camacho is also a suspect in a separate case involving a female minor, which is why GPD charged him with child abuse. Assistant Attorney General James Collins made the recommendation he be held on a quarter-million dollars bail. "Beyond the extreme seriousness of the case and the crimes charged, I would note he is on probationary status along with his long-distinguished prior criminal record and the fact that he is a registered sex offender, according to probation," Collins said.
The Level III Sex Offender's criminal record dates back to 1998 when he was arrested for several family violence cases and criminal trespass, in 1999 he was convicted of 3rd degree robbery, and in 2000 sentenced to nine months for 4th degree criminal sexual conduct. Between 2004 and 2009 Camacho was arrested multiple times on charges of robbery, assault, and terrorizing. Last year he was arrested for impersonating a police officer. Meantime, Camacho is scheduled to return to court for a pretrial conference on October 29.
