A man who is alleged to have raped a Yosemite National Park staffer last month has been indicted, according to federal authorities.

Nathan Baptista is the suspect, according to a news statement issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of California, on Thursday. Following a grand jury’s indictment on Thursday, the 36-year-old was charged with one count of aggravated sexual abuse.

Authorities claim that around the end of May, the suspect choked and sexually assaulted a female employee of Yosemite National Park.

“According to court documents, on May 31, 2024, Baptista forcibly raped and strangled a female park employee after meeting her that night,” the release said.

Due to a “dangerous” incident seen on camera, a Yellowstone tourist was sentenced to seven days in jail.

“[The victim] reported that when she and a friend were walking home they stopped at the house the subject (“Nate”) shares with other Yosemite Hospitality employees… [the victim] indicated that she was in the living room talking with the subject, nobody else was around, and that is when he assaulted her,” the documents described.
