Willows Police respond to the same residence twice within a 24-hour period this week, first for a burglary, and then for a rape.

Noe Trevino said he, his 19-year-old wife, and 10-month old son have lived in a second story unit off of North Butte Street for six months.

But Trevino said that Tuesday, someone broke in to his home when no one was home.

He said whoever was there trashed the place, so his wife called police.

"At the time she didn't think anything was missing," Willows Police Chief Jason Dahl said. "Then she called later in the evening and then there was supposedly a laptop taken there too. It was our second visit to the house within 24 hours."

Willows Police were back just before 7am Wednesday, as Trevino's wife said a white male with a handgun broke in and raped her.

The door was till broken (though able to close, say police) from Tuesday.

Police said they responded to the rape call within about a minute.

"The subject was already gone, so we basically took care of the victim, sent her to the hospital, and the investigation's going from there," Dahl said.

Trevino said the man also injured his baby son when he threw him around the time of the attack on his wife.

Willows Police confirm they looking into that, but cannot confirm whether these incidents are related.

"You're dealing with a violent crime that's reported, so we're going to cover every single angle that we can. We're going to look at all different angles on this and we're going to do it to the best of our abilities," Dahl said.
The suspect is described as a white male that was wearing blue jeans and a sweatshirt.

Anyone with information is asked to call Willows Police at (530) 934-3456.
