Serial rapist illegal migrant attacked woman in ‘rape dungeon on wheels’: cops

An illegal migrant allegedly went on a serial raping spree in Southern California, attacking his victims in a “rape dungeon on wheels” before he was caught in the act by cops.

Eduardo Sarabia, 40, was arrested Monday with a 26-year-old woman inside his decked-out van, which he had driven to a remote area of the San Gabriel Mountains near San Bernadino, sources told Fox 11.

It was the second time in two days that he allegedly took a victim to the secluded spot — but investigators suspect that Sarabia’s twisted spree lasted much longer.

“The horrific and violent sexual assault that these two survivors endured by the alleged suspect is deeply troubling and incomprehensible. Our thoughts are with the victims during this tremendously difficult time,” LA County District Attorney George Gascón said Thursday.

According to the LA Sheriff’s Department, Sarabia drove both his female victims to a dark turnout in the forest off the highway on May 12 and 13, respectively. Both attacks took place around 10 p.m.

Sarabia’s white 2015 Ford Transit van — described as a “rape dungeon on wheels” — had no windows and was “disgustingly outfitted for rape,” sources told Fox 11.

Investigators also told the outlet that Sarabia is a transient and an illegal immigrant from Mexico.

“Based on the nature of the allegations, detectives believe there may be additional unidentified victims. Detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying any such victims,” the sheriff’s department said Wednesday.

The accused serial rapist has been charged with one count of forcible rape and one count of forcible oral copulation.
