Multiple Neighbors Called Police After Hearing Screams For Help But The Police Never Entered The Home.
Peter Anthony McGuire, 59, was arrested after an hours-long standoff on suspicion of torture, kidnapping, mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment by violence, forcible rape, and other sex crimes.
Authorities said the victim, a 22-year-old woman, was held captive by McGuire for several months and was raped, tortured, and assaulted. McGuire was arrested Saturday morning after barricading himself inside a home in Placentia.
McGuire also faces special allegations of inflicting significant bodily injury during a sex offense and administering a controlled substance during the commission of a sex crime, according to the San Bernardino County district attorney’s office.

McGuire pleaded not guilty Monday and was not granted bail, the district attorney’s office said.
The woman escaped McGuire’s home Thursday night and was spotted minutes later in Alterra Park by bystanders who called the police, the district attorney’s office said Saturday in a release. She was taken to a hospital for treatment of her injuries.
