Man faces charges in brutal rape, theft

A 19-year-old man appeared in court Tuesday on charges he allegedly raped an intoxicated teenager and left her lying half-naked and unconscious behind a Daly City paint store.

Daly City resident Randy Pollard is facing felony charges of rape of an intoxicated person, unlawful intercourse with a minor, grand theft and possession of stolen property. He is also charged with misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Tuesday, a judge delayed his preliminary hearing until next month due to a scheduling conflict.

Prosecutors say Pollard and the 15-year-old girl had been drinking at a Daly City home on April 14. The two did not know each other, but had mutual friends, Deputy District Attorney Elaine Tipton said.

When the intoxicated girl began stumbling away from the party, Pollard allegedly followed her down the street and raped her before stealing her cellular phone, Tipton said.

Employees of Dunn-Edwards Paints, arriving for work at 6 a.m., found the girl lying in the dirt behind the Junipero Serra Boulevard business and at first believed she was dead, Tipton said.

Daly City police arrested Pollard on Memorial Day Weekend after learning that he had repeatedly used the stolen phone, Tipton said. He pleaded not guilty May 27.
