A Winnetka man was sentenced Monday to 32 years in prison for the early morning rape of a woman in the parking lot of a Valencia restaurant.

The victim was standing next to her car when the attacker forced her into the vehicle and raped her. She managed finally to honk the car’s horn, and the loud blast in the quiet neighborhood forced the man to flee.

Etienne Juarez Rosas, 26, pleaded no contest March 27 to one count each of forcible rape and kidnapping and two counts of sexual penetration by a foreign object.

The attack occurred about 4 a.m. on Oct. 25, 2015, in the 27500 block of Wayne Mills Place. The 25-year-old victim was standing next to her parked car when Rosas spoke briefly to her and then suddenly forced her into her vehicle.

Rosas assaulted the woman and then ran off when she was able to honk her car horn.

He was arrested in Santa Clarita and has been jailed since then.
