A man suspected of sneaking into an Encinitas woman’s apartment two weeks ago and sexually assaulting her sat behind bars Thursday.

Deputies arrested Maynor Ricardo Funes, 32, Wednesday after he left a residence in the 1400 block of Hermes Avenue in Encinitas, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

Funes allegedly attacked the victim while she slept in her residence in the 2000 block of Carol View Drive shortly before midnight on Sept. 17, Lt. Joel Stranger said. Ultimately, she chased the shirtless assailant from her home.

Officials did not disclose what led to the identification of Funes as the alleged perpetrator.

Authorities booked Funes into county jail in Vista on multiple charges. They include suspicion of burglary, assault to commit rape, forcible sex with a foreign object and forcible sodomy.

He was being held on $1 million bail pending arraignment, tentatively scheduled for Friday.
