[UPDATED with DA Charges:] Christopher David Schwanke, Parolee Accused of Showing Partiers "Man-Gina" and Later Fingering the Hostess
The OCDA says Schwanke faces a maximum sentence of 15 years to life in state prison and that he has an arraignment hearing some time today in Santa Ana. The Orange County Sheriff's Department, which is investigating the case from unincorporated Anaheim, had said Schwanke was being held in the Central Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail, but the new OCDA statement pegs the bond at $1 million.
Prosecutors say the couple Schwanke would allegedly go on to terrorize was handing out candy to trick-or-treaters Monday evening when they noticed him in front of their Pacific Avenue house.
Anyone with additional information about the case is asked to contact Supervising District Attorney Investigator Lou Gutierrez at 714.347.8794 or the OCSD tip hotline at 855.TIP.OCCS.
ORIGINAL POST, NOV. 2, 10:51 A.M.: A couple was sleeping in their Pacific Avenue home in an unincorporated area of Anaheim around 11 p.m. Halloween night when the wife was awakened by her crotch being massaged.
"What are you doing?" she asked her husband.
"I'm sleeping," he replied. "What do you mean?"
It then hit them they were not alone in the bedroom.
And amid the violent struggle that ensued between the husband and the frisky intruder, the couple realized the creeper was the uninvited guest at a party they hosted two weeks earlier.
The couple left him alone at first, unsure if he was accompanying someone who had been invited. But then the stranger acted so "bizarre" that the husband asked him to leave the party, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
Before making his exit, the man reportedly dropped his pants and told the revelers to "look at my man-gina."
No one informed authorities about the party crasher. But the couple saw him again about 7:30 p.m. Monday in front of their home. They began a casual conservation, asking who he was. He answered he was in the neighborhood visiting a female friend.
Their next meeting was from their bed 3 1/2 hours later. The creeper was on the bedroom floor nearby, trying to hide--or perhaps make himself invisible like Burt on Soap.
Sheriff's officials say the struggle between the husband and the intruder was quite violent and that several of the couple's items were broken. The man of the house was able to get the upper hand and restrain the suspect while his wife called 9-1-1. Investigators determined he'd broken in through a locked back door. He left a shirt on the floor and another outside the home, deputies say.

Recently released from prison, Schwanke has a long rap sheet that includes theft, narcotics violations, domestic violence, driving under the influence of alcohol and assault with a deadly weapon.
Possession of a "man-gina" is not listed on his sheet, however.
By the way, isn't Schwanke another nickname for a man-gina?
