A registered sex offender was arrested Monday after he allegedly forced himself on a woman, kissing and fondling her at her home in Jacumba, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department confirmed.
Deputies said John Wilson Kreischer, 68, was taken into custody on charges of burglary and sexual battery after he allegedly entered the home of a 70-year-old woman late Monday morning.
The victim told investigators Kreischer kissed and touched her for several minutes before he left her home. The woman contacted deputies and Kreischer was arrested shortly thereafter.
According to investigators, Kreischer is currently on California State parole stemming from a 2009 arrest for failing to register as a sex offender.
His criminal record cites his prior offenses, including rape with force and threat, lewd acts with a child under 14 and assault with an intent to commit a specified sex offense.
He was released in 2013 and is on GPS monitoring as a condition of his parole. The sheriff’s department said Kreischer has previously registered in the City of San Diego and as a transient in Lemon Grove.
These alleged sex charges are under investigation. Kreischer was booked into San Diego Central Jail and is set to appear in court Wednesday.
Anyone with information on Kreischer should contact the sheriff’s department at (858) 565-5200 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
