He was charged with 17 felony counts, including attempted murder, forcible rape, false imprisonment by violence, first-degree residential robbery, first-degree burglary and multiple counts of sexual assault. He is being held at Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles in lieu of $16.4 million.

Moon was arrested Feb. 16 by Sheriff’s deputies, who analyzed video footage of the neighborhood provided by the Stevenson Ranch Homeowner’s Association. Detectives were able to obtain a photo of Moon and ascertain his Steinbeck Avenue address. Evidence recovered at the crime scene and property obtained using a search warrant of Moon’s home supported his arrest; he was taken into custody and booked at the Santa Clarita Valley station.

If convicted, he faces up to life in prison.
