California woman fights off naked man who snuck into her apartment

A woman woke up early Saturday to find a naked man who had snuck into her Santa Monica apartment and tried to rape her before she fought him off, police said.

A California man was arrested Monday for allegedly breaking into a woman’s Santa Monica apartment over the weekend and trying to rape her, police said. 

Santa Monica police received a call from a resident in the 1500 block around 1 a.m. Saturday. The caller told police she’d woken up to a nude man standing next to her bed. 

The woman fought off the intruder and managed to open the front door of the apartment, forcing her would-be rapist out. 

Santa Monica Police Forensics Unit and detectives responded to the apartment. Investigators identified the suspect as 29-year-old Cordell Dionte Studley. 


Police said Studley had been observed at the woman’s apartment complex twice on Friday. 

A wanted notice was issued for Studley on Sunday. Police arrested him on Monday. 

Studley is charged with assault with intent to commit rape, residential burglary, and false imprisonment.
