RIVERSIDE – A man accused of sexually assaulting his former girlfriend at her Menifee home was charged today with rape of an intimate partner resulting in great bodily injury.
David Dawty Shui, 42, of Cerritos was arrested on Thursday following a Riverside County sheriff’s investigation into allegations that he had attacked the victim, whose identity was not released.
Shui appeared today before Riverside County Superior Court Judge Michele Levine, who appointed him a public defender and scheduled his arraignment for Thursday at the Southwest Justice Center in Murrieta.
Shui is being held in lieu of $55,000 bail at the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning.
According to sherif’s Sgt. Glenn Williams, the defendant allegedly attacked the victim on July 2 at her house in the 31000 block of Eastridge Avenue. Details were not disclosed.
