Security Guard Arrested For New Monterey Rape

Daniel Lee Bell, of Seaside, was arrested at 12:14 p.m. on a $150,000 warrant. The warrant stemmed from a Dec. 30, 2013, report by a woman who told police she had been raped by an unknown man.

At the time of the alleged assault, Bell was on duty as a uniformed security guard patrolling apartment complexes throughout Monterey County. Employed by San Jose-based Code 3, Bell was driving a marked security vehicle and wearing a duty belt with pepper spray, a baton and a stun gun, police said.

The woman and her male companion were contacted by Bell on the 700 block of Pine Street in Monterey as they walked home from a local bar. They thought Bell was a police officer due to his uniform and marked vehicle, the woman told police.
