A judge has re-scheduled a preliminary hearing for April 17 for an 18-year-old man who is charged with sexually assaulting a woman in Pacific Beach.

The hearing for Seth Alan Roberts had been set for Tuesday, Feb. 5, but was reset in San Diego Superior Court so the attorneys can have more time to prepare for it.

Roberts was arrested by San Diego Police on Dec. 6, 2018, on charges of sexually assaulting a woman in a residence on Reed Avenue in Pacific Beach on Nov. 17. He is also charged with raping another woman in Bonita on Oct. 18 at knifepoint.

The charges allege he has raped multiple victims and would face a prison term of 15 years to life if he is convicted of all charges. A motion hearing was set for Feb. 26.

Roberts has pleaded not guilty. He waived his right to have a speedy trial.  Roberts remains in the George Bailey Detention Facility on $1.25 million bail.
