Police Say Stalker Was Targeting Women In Downtown Grand Junction

Grand Valley police said a Grand Junction man was in custody Monday, accused of following at least two different women home from stores in the area and attempting to rape one of them. According to the Grand Junction Police Deparment, it may have been a pattern of stalking, and there may be other victims involved.

Gabriel Adam Silva, 24, followed a woman home from the City Market at 1st Street and Rood Avenue, Sunday afternoon. Once he felt sure the woman was alone, police say Silva entered the home and grabbed the victim. She eventually escaped. The victim then called 9-1-1 from a neighbor's house. Police set up a perimeter around the victim's house and took Silva into custody as he exited.

In the suspect's vehicle they found numbers and letters that correspond to the victim's license plate written on a magazine, but hers' was reportedly not the only license number Silva had written down.

Officers believe there may be other victims out there, some of whom may not have realized the danger they were in. An investigation continues.
