Yuba County Man Arrested for Sexual Assault on Developmentally Disabled Woman

A Yuba County man is under arrest charged for allegedly sexually assaulting a developmentally disabled woman. Yuba County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Damon Gil says 46 year old Scott Mitchum met the disabled woman a week ago.   He went to her home in Linda where the assault occurred. The Lieutenant describes what happened.

“She had met up with a male individual and had taken that individual to her residence in east Linda and then, just after midnight, on Tuesday into Wednesday morning and the subject had sexually assaulted her.”

The victim repeatedly begged Mitchum to stop the assault. The woman reported the attack to another agency that helps developmental disable adults several days after the attack. Mitchum was located by investigators early Friday morning and taken into custody.
