Authorities are encouraging possible additional victims of an accused Redwood City rapist to come forward.
Juan Ramirez Ruiz, 25, of Redwood City was arrested Wednesday in connection with a woman’s report in April 2017 that he raped her inside her apartment, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

“Based on the ongoing investigation and information gathered, it is believed that there could be additional victims,” the sheriff’s office said.
