Mexico Nabs Suspected Serial Rapist

CIUDAD JUAREZ, MEXICO – Authorities arrested a Mexican-born U.S. citizen accused of raping at least 19 women south of the border, the Chihuahua state Attorney General’s Office said Tuesday.

Jorge Alberto Mendez Navarro, 43, was arrested following a criminal complaint filed by a minor, prosecutors said in a statement.

Ciudad Juarez, just across the border from El Paso, Texas, has become infamous for the mostly unsolved murders of 500 women and girls since 1993.

Mendez Navarro was investigated by Mexican authorities a year ago, and is a suspect in at least 19 cases of sexual assault against women ranging in age from 13 to 32.

The suspect, a native of the northern Mexican city of Torreon, now lives in El Paso where he has a criminal record for indecent exposure, the Chihuahua AG’s office said.

There currently exists only one formal complaint in Mexico against Mendez Navarro, filed on March 24 by a 17-year-old girl who said she had been attacked by the suspect in a poor neighborhood southwest of Ciudad Juarez.

According to the report from the AG’s office, the last two attacks for which Mendez Navarro is accused took place on April 3 in a residential district of the city.

The suspected rapist was arrested when one of his victims took down the number of his vehicle’s Texas license plate, which enabled his address in the United States to be located.

Mendez Navarro was arrested the next time he entered Juarez from El Paso. EFE
