Ortiz, 31, reportedly turned himself in to the Oxnard Police department with a bail said to be $100,000.

Ortiz was charged last Monday by the Ventura County District Attorney’s office. Ortiz was charged with three felony assault charges in which one of the charges is forcible rape.
The charges are for an assault that allegedly took place on March 19. The police were notified then on the same date. It’s unclear whether Ortiz knew his alleged victim.
And, on Tuesday, Ortiz turned himself into the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, according to vcstar.
