‘Person of interest’ no longer a suspect in CV home invasions

Investigators currently have no suspects in a pair of home invasions in Carmel Valley, police said Monday.

Last week, police arrested Todd David Martin on an unrelated drug charge and called him a “person of interest” in the case. However, the 45-year-old Martin is no longer a suspect, according to Monica Munoz of the San Diego Police Department.

Martin appeared before Judge David Szumowski this afternoon and pleaded not guilty to possessing .08 grams of methamphetamine, but faces no other charges.

The most recent home invasion occurred Wednesday, March 4, when an assailant
forced a 33-year-old woman into her home in the 3700 block of Carmel View Road, where he bound and sexually assaulted her and slashed her arm before fleeing with her purse, according to police.

The attacker was described as a roughly 5-foot-7-inch Latino man who appeared to be in his 30s and wore dark-colored clothing, gloves, a baseball cap and sunglasses.

A similar crime took place in the same general area in February.
