A Watsonville was arrested Tuesday after breaking into a Santa Cruz residence in the early hours of the morning. A woman on the 300 block of Walnut Avenue awoke shortly after 4:30am to find 23-year-old Jose Manuel Gomez standing over her bed. The victim’s boyfriend was also in the residence, and scared off Gomez with a flare and a samurai sword. When Santa Cruz Police officers arrived, they found Gomez urinating on the front door of the home. Gomez was taken into custody on a charge of burglary and held for 50 thousand dollars bail. Gomez is a transient from Watsonville with a long arrest record, including arrests for trespassing and sexual battery.
