An Anaheim man charged with kidnapping and sexually assaulting an 18-year-old developmentally disabled woman is expected to be arraigned Tuesday in Orange County Superior Court, police said.

The woman was assaulted Friday afternoon in a bathroom at the School for Continuing Education in Fullerton, police said.

Raul Barrientos, 22, was arrested on the campus after he was stopped by a security guard while trying to leave the area in a bus, said Sgt. Andrew Goodrich of the Fullerton Police Department.

"The girl has a greatly diminished mental capacity, but we were able to get the bad guy," Goodrich told The Times.

He said Barrientos was being held in Orange County jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
