Meanwhile, in Palm Springs

A Palm Springs police advisory (with photo). This guy sounds dangerously aggressive.

On Thursday morning 4/21/16 at approximately 3:30 AM, the PSPD Communications Center received a 911 call from a distraught female reporting that a male subject had broke a window to her home in the 2700 block of E Mesquite Ave in Palm Springs, climbed through the window and physically and sexually assaulted her and her husband. The caller further stated that the suspect was still in the house. While on the phone with dispatchers the female caller began screaming that the suspect was attacking her. The woman's husband was able to pull the male off of her and pin him down until police arrived.

Officers arrived at the location within 6 minutes of the call and detained the male inside the residence. The male was identified as:

Thomas Mabe DOB - 5/10/1971 of Palm Springs.

Neither homeowner required medical attention.

During further investigation, officers learned that Mabe broke a window to the home, entered the residence and sexually assaulted the husband and wife.

The homeowners were able to push the suspect away but he remained in the home trying to get dressed. The homeowners and suspect moved into the living room where the wife called 911. While on the phone with 911, the suspect lunged at the wife and physically grabbed onto her while trying to take the phone from her. The husband grabbed the suspect and pinned him down until police arrived to detain him.

Thomas Mabe was recently arrested by PSPD on 3/1/16 for Child Annoyance where he approached a 16 year old girl on foot who was walking to school, made sexual comments to the girl and attempted to grab her when a passerby witnessed the incident and stepped in and rescued the child. PSPD filed the case with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office on 3/2/16 who subsequently filed one count of 647.6(a)(1) PC – Child Annoyance with victim under 18 years old and 1203.2 PC – Violation of Probation.

Thomas Mabe plead guilty and was placed on probation for that incident and released from jail on March 19th.

Mabe was also arrested by PSPD on April 17th for being under the influence of a controlled substance and booked into the Riverside County Jail. He was released from custody the following day on April 18th, 2016.
