A 51-year-old man was charged Wednesday with posing as a police officer, threatening three women with a handgun and sexually assaulting them, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials said.
William Hernandez was taken into custody Monday during a traffic stop in Big Bear, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. Hernandez is being held on $1 million bail.
“This doesn’t happen, and when it does it’s scary and it’s so egregious,” Det. James Marshall said.
Hernandez faces nine felony rape-related counts as well as several charges for dissuading a witness from reporting the assaults that occurred in February and March, according to San Bernardino County Superior Court records.
