Felipe Jesus Marquez-Segura, 23, of Chico, entered court on Thursday while being held on charges including sexual assault and burglary. The defendant pleaded not guilty to forcible sexual penetration and first-degree burglary.

According to a Chico Police Department press release, the Chico resident had been arrested after a caller reported that an unrecognizable suspect had entered their neighbor’s residency after prowling the area for some time.

During the investigation, the victim successfully identified Marquez-Segura to California State University PD after she ran out of her home. Despite being able to recognize the perpetrator, the victim said she never had any previous connection to him.

According to Chico Police Department’s crime portal website, the Butte County resident was arrested Saturday, at 5:54 a.m. on 721 West Third Street.
