"Very soon after moving into the house she was not allowed to leave, she was held there against her will by him and at that point was subjected to multiple assaults," Mara Rodriguez, a spokesperson for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, told ABC7.com "We have charges of sodomy and oral copulation, mayhem, rape."

Last week, the woman escaped the home and called police. She was located in a park and taken to the hospital, where she is in stable condition. McGuire, meanwhile, was arrested last week after he went to another property in Placenta, Orange County and barricaded himself, according to the Daily Mail.
