The Riverside County District Attorney's Office this week named four of the county's most wanted fugitives, one of them being connected to a crime that happened nearly seven years ago on El Paseo.
Joshua Dario Constante– who is also known as Juan Carlos Perez– is suspected of taking part in the May 19, 2006 armed robbery of The Estate Jewelry Collection, according to a statement from the DA's office.
Not only is the 27-year-old accused of entering the business with a gun and ordering employees to open the safes, but he's also accused of sexually assaulting women in the store.
"During the robbery, Constante cut the bras and panties off of the female victims after binding their hands and placing duct tape over their mouths and eyes," a statement from the district attorney's office alleged. "Constante also kicked the women several times throughout the attack."
After the alleged assault, Constante and his accomplice took "a large amount of jewelry and cash" from the store and fled, the statement said.
That accomplish pled guilty in October 2011, "over the objection of prosecutors," and was sentenced to 16 years in prison, the DA's office said.
Constante is still sought by authorities and is described as a 5'6" Hispanic man weighing about 160 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
