A Westminster, CA Police Detective, Anthony Orban, and a CA Corrections Officer, Jeff Jelinek, have been charged in the alleged rape and kidnapping of a 25-year-old female restaurant worker.
The victim was walking to her car in the parking lot of Ontario Mills Mall when she was confronted by the two men. Jelinek stood by as Orban allegedly got into her car, pointed a gun at her and forced her to drive to a commercial complex in Fontana, where he raped her in the parking lot. The woman managed to escape after about two hours and contacted police. Orban had left his service revolver in the victim's car, allowing authorities to connect him to the crime.
In the felony complaint, Orban is charged with kidnapping, rape, forced oral copulation, penetration with a foreign object, forced sodomy and making criminal threats. Jelinek is charged with kidnapping, rape, and being an accessory after the fact. Even though Jelinek did not rape the woman, his actions aided the crime, and he can therefore be charged. If convicted, both men face 25 years to life in prison on the rape charge alone.
