Corona Police arrested a 33-year-old Corona man Friday night on suspicion of raping and stabbing a real estate agent.

Police said Shawn David Yates arranged a meeting with the agent acting like a prospective buyer. When the agent showed up to the home on Silvestre Court, Yates took the woman by knifepoint into the home, police said.

Yates raped the agent then began stabbing her with a knife, police said. The woman fought back and was able to get away and run to a neighboring home where police were called.

The woman was taken to a hospital with multiple stab wounds.

Yates was booked on suspicion of rape and attempted murder.
