San Jose: Homeless man accused of rape arrested Friday morning

- By Bay City News Service 

A homeless man wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant for an alleged sexual assault was arrested this morning at an encampment, according to a spokeswoman for the San Jose Police Department. 

Sharwian Bobian, 43, was arrested in January on suspicion of raping a woman who tried to give him food and supplies at a makeshift dwelling in the 14000 block of Llagas Avenue, near Llagas Creek in 
unincorporated Santa Clara County.

Bobian was released, sparking controversy, before charges were filed against him.

San Jose Police said a patrol officer located Bobian in the vicinity of Yerba Buena Road and U.S. Highway 101 around 9:30 a.m. this morning.

They've referred further questions to the Santa Clara County district attorney.
