Nicholas Guzman – Scumbag Pedophile sends wife off to shop while molests child in his truck

A 38-year-old Richmond man who parked his truck in a San Pablo strip mall lot while his wife went shopping has been charged with molesting a 10-year-old girl inside the vehicle.

The incident was interrupted by a parking enforcement officer, police said.

Nicholas Guzman, aka Jose Jesus Quintero, was arraigned Thursday morning in a Richmond courtroom, where Judge Peter Berger set his bail at $100,000, according to a court clerk. He is scheduled to return to court Nov. 6 for plea entry.

Guzman was naked in the bed of a covered truck with the child when San Pablo police aide Johanna Gray discovered him about 7 p.m. Oct. 24, said Sgt. David Krastof. The girl’s clothes had been partially removed, the sergeant said.

Gray had been conducting parking enforcement at the San Pablo Avenue strip mall containing FoodMaxx and Big Lots when she spotted the truck parked next to a store, away from where the general public parks.

“She (Gray) got their just in time,” Krastof said.

A medical evaluation determined the girl had not been raped, he said.

Gray took custody of the child and ordered Guzman to wait while she summoned police officers. Guzman hurried off despite the order, but was quickly located with the help of his wife, who had been shopping at the strip mall during the molestation, Krastof said.

The girl was an acquaintance of Guzman’s and had gone to the shopping center with the couple. She was taken to the Contra Costa Regional Center after the incident and was reunited with her family.

“She was, obviously, very shaken up,” Krastof said.
