A Claremont man was in custody Friday on suspicion of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman, and police suspect there may be additional victims.

John Dehaseth, 56, was arrested Thursday at his home and booked on suspicion of rape and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to Claremont police.

Dehaseth was being held on $100,000 bail, with arraignment expected Monday at the Pomona courthouse.

The investigation began on March 23, when officers went to the 1500 block of Mural Drive on a report of a disturbance.

“Officers … located a 38-year-old female victim who stated she was drugged and sexually assaulted by the suspect inside his nearby residence,” according to a Claremont police statement. “The victim was able to provide the officers with suspect information and the location where the crime occurred.”

Detectives urged anyone with information relevant to the case to call 909-399-5411.
