A San Bruno man who was arrested over the weekend after allegedly breaking into a South San Francisco home wearing only his underwear and then assaulting a resident has pleaded not guilty to three felonies, a deputy district attorney said today. Rodney Rajiv Narayan, 25, appeared in San Mateo County Superior Court on Monday and pleaded not guilty to indecent exposure, battery and residential burglary, Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti said.
At about 5:50 p.m. on Saturday, officers responded to a report of a man without clothes on who had broken into a home in the 800 block of Second Lane, South San Francisco police Sgt. Bruce McPhillips said. A preliminary investigation indicated that Narayan had entered the home by climbing through a garage window, police said. He then allegedly picked up some money and other small items in the home and entered the main living area, where he encountered a woman and her two young children, McPhillips said.
Narayan allegedly grabbed the woman’s arm and tried to get her to go with him into another area of the home, McPhillips said. When she refused, according to police, he allegedly reached into his underwear and acted like he was masturbating. He then went into a room near the garage, and the victim was able to lock the door behind him and call police, according to McPhillips. Narayan was arrested and booked into San Mateo County Jail, where he remains in custody in lieu of $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to return to court for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 16.
