The owner of a landscape company is facing rape charges; one of the victims says she was attacked on her first day of work.
At least two victims have come forward claiming Pasqual Atanacio Gonzalez raped them in a secluded area in Plumas Lake.
One woman says the first assault happened in mid-December on her first day working for Gonzalez. She told Yuba City Police Gonzalez tried to rape her again the next day.
After Gonzalez was arrested, a second victim came forward. Officers say the second victim also worked for Gonzalez, and reported he raped her in Plumas Lake.
He was arrested again, and is currently being held on a $600,000 bail.
Detectives are contacting other past employees of Gonzalez’ landscaping business.
