The victim was running when she was grabbed from behind by a man, who ordered her to be quiet and hand over her money. She said he tried several times to use a stun gun on her and also put his arm around her throat in a strangling hold. She eventually got away.

Cabral is a registered sex offender for a 2005 case in Texas involving the aggravated sexual assault of a child.
