Los Osos man allegedly raped disabled teen
March 30, 2015
Deputies arrested a 57-year-old man Sunday for allegedly raping a teenage friend of his daughter while the girl was spending the night at his home on the 1200 block of 11th Street in Los Osos.
On Friday night, after her friend and three other family members went to bed, the 16-year-old developmentally disabled girl retired for the night on the couch. Her friend’s father, Steve James Linzmeier, was in the living room watching television.
Sometime during the night, Linzmeier allegedly sexually assaulted the teen.
Deputies arrested Linzmeier on multiple charges including rape by force, child molestation and committing a violent crime against a person who is disabled. He was booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail with his bail set at $175,000.
Detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify any other potential victims in this case by contacting the SLO County Sheriff’s Office at (805) 781-4500.
