A Yucca Valley man was arrested Friday morning after a brief chase, accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl in Claremont in March.

Claremont police recovered evidence at the scene that led to the identification of Davall as a suspect in the crime. About 6:50 a.m. Friday, April 18, Davall left his home in the 7600 block of Joshua Lane in Yucca Valley, and Claremont police–who had been staking out his home—attempted a traffic stop a short distance away. Davall failed to stop and led Claremont police on a short pursuit back to his home, where, with the assistance of the Morongo Basin Sheriff’s Department, Davall was taken into custody. Claremont police say additional evidence was recovered at Davall’s home that links him to the Claremont crime. Joseph Davall was arrested for investigation of sexual assault and is being held in the Claremont City jail with his bail set at $100,000. Joseph Davall was arrested by Desert Hot Springs Police in October 2012 for investigation of attempted rape, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon and burglary. Claremont police released only a composite sketch of Davall, saying that additional evidence suggests he could be involved in a number of related similar crimes throughout southern California.
