Peninsula: Berkeley man arrested in attack on skater

A 36-year-old Berkeley man has been arrested in connection with an attack on a female inline skater last year on the Foster City pedway.

Foster City police said physical evidence led them to Ricardo Solis-Montenegro, who is in custody in Berkeley on unrelated charges. He now faces attempted rape, assault and robbery charges stemming from the April 30, 2006, Foster City incident. Authorities said Solis-Montenegro jumped from the bushes, tackled the 32-year-old woman and told her he was going to sexually assault her. She was able to escape by running away, authorities said.
