San Carlos man accused of sexually assaulting teen he met on dating app

Bay Area

SAN CARLOS (KRON) — Sodomy by force and oral copulation — those are the charges against 57-year-old Jeffrey Ramsden, a man who authorities say used a dating app to meet an underage teen.

Ramsden is then accused of meeting up with that teen and sexually assaulting him on two different occasions.

“I’m so shocked,” said a neighbor of the suspect.

“I think that I may have seen him around, [that] concerns me greatly.”

Ramsden’s San Carlos neighbors were shocked to hear the news, saying they are hopeful that there aren’t anymore victims.

“So the notion that he was living in and amongst all of us is frightening,” another neighbor said.

KRON4’s JR Stone went to Ramsden’s home at the Britton Apartments in San Carlos but no one answered the door.

The 57-year-old is facing two felony charges.

Authorities though say this is an open investigation and are urging anyone who has had contact with Ramsden to come forward.

It is also important to note that Ramsden has pleaded not guilty to those two felony charges against him.
