Chino Hills man allegedly kidnapped and tortured a woman, then held her against her will could have more victims

It is believed that a man who was accused of torturing, kidnapping, and holding a woman against the will of his Chino Hills house has also been accused by other women. authorities said Thursday.

Peter McGuire, 59, allegedly kidnapped a 22-year-old woman until she was able to escape his home in the 16200 block of Cordovan Court on June 9, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said.

McGuire, the victim who was clearly injured, claimed that he had held her against will for several months and tortured, assaulted, and raped him.

Deputies searched McGuire’s home and found that he had left the scene.

After he was arrested, authorities found that McGuire was living in Placentia. Deputies arrived at the home to arrest him. McGuire refused to let them out and barricaded himself inside.

He eventually surrendered and was arrested and booked on suspicion of kidnapping, torture, aggravated mayhem, rape, false imprisonment and assault with a deadly weapon, Sheriff’s Department officials said.

He pleaded guilty to the charges stemming earlier this week.

McGuire had been known by the victim, and she was believed to have moved in with McGuire earlier this year. Officials stated that the victim was denied permission to leave shortly after she moved in.

The Sheriff’s Department on Thursday released a photo of McGuire, saying they believe he may have victimized others.

If you have any additional information or believe McGuire was a victim, please call Detective Ryan Girard and Deputy Dan Renear at Chino Hills Station at 909-364-20000. Officials ask that anyone calling outside San Bernardino County call their local law enforcement agency.
