Man convicted in Curtis Park Airbnb sexual assault case

In a trial that concluded on Friday, a Sacramento County Superior Court jury convicted a man for forcible sexual penetration during the commission of a burglary.

Evidence in the case showed that on July 19, 2018, Angel Myles Burnett, 22, burglarized an Airstream trailer in at Curtis Park residence that was occupied as an Airbnb by a visiting businesswoman. When Burnett entered the trailer the victim was sleeping.  

When Burnett began to sexually assault the victim, she struggled to resist him and fought back during the assault. Burnett repeatedly told the victim he had a weapon and wore a backpack he never removed. 

Eventually, Burnett fled the trailer and the victim called 911. Burnett’s thumbprint was recovered from the door frame and matching DNA was recovered from the crime scene, and when he was apprehended 11 days later, he had methamphetamine in his sock and had a backpack containing burglary type tools. 

Burnett faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison. Sentencing is on July 26.
