On the morning of March 26, a woman known in court records only as “Jane Doe 1” woke up and began her daily routine, getting herself ready to make it out of the house before 7:30 a.m. and head off to work.
She didn’t know it then, but outside, a man was waiting, stun gun in hand, a woman’s wig atop his head. When she got to the parking lot, he came up, pressed the stun gun against her hip and pushed the button. But nothing happened; the stun gun apparently had malfunctioned.
Doe 1, startled, dropped the belongings in her hands and ran.
Her assailant started to chase her, but Doe 1 got lucky; he tripped and fell, then thought better of continuing the pursuit, running instead to a silver Volkswagen and peeling off. Doe 1 called the cops.
Doe 1 would later tell authorities she didn’t recognize the man who attacked her, but police would come to find out he had been studying her for a while. He had her name, age and address written down, aerial photos of her house and handwritten notes about his plan, according to court records.
Within 24 hours, police identified a suspect, 37-year-old Matt Caruso, of Newark, and uncovered evidence of a chilling plot. Caruso allegedly documented his plot to rape two women, one in Walnut Creek, the other in Danville.
According to police, Caruso kept notes on where the women worked, directions to their homes, and whether they lived with anyone. He allegedly downloaded satellite images of their neighborhoods and detailed graphic, grotesque ways he would force himself on them, saying he wanted to rape, sodomize and forcibly orally copulate both women.
“I need to rape (Jane Doe 2),” one note allegedly said. “I will tie her to my bed … rape her hard … she is so hot!!”
For both victims, Caruso allegedly speculated about whether they would fit into a tactical bag.
It is unclear how Doe 1 and Doe 2 were selected as victims.
