MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MD (WJLA) — Police have arrested an illegal alien on allegations he hit, strangled and raped a woman at a Silver Spring apartment building.
Kevin Mendoza, 26, is charged with first-degree rape, attempted second-degree murder, and first-degree assault.
Montgomery County Police say the victim suffered multiple injuries during the attack. Doctors told them the severity of her strangulation alone could have resulted in her death.
Shortly before midnight on Aug. 16, the victim was walking through the apartment parking lot carrying items from her car when she noticed Mendoza following her. As the woman tried to unlock the door to the apartment building — located along the 8500 block of 16th Street — Mendoza allegedly grabbed her from behind and threw her to the ground.
When the woman tried to yell, police say Mendoza strangled her with his hands… nearly to the point of unconsciousness. When the woman tried to escape, Mendoza allegedly hit her in the face and head, and then raped her.
A Montgomery County Police investigation revealed that Mendoza was a former resident of the apartment building where he committed the crime. He was arrested around 10:30 a.m. Monday, three days after the attack.
UPDATE: According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Mendoza is a Honduran national living in the country illegally. On Tuesday, the federal law enforcement agency filed an immigration detainer against the 26-year-old.
Around 2 p.m., Aug. 21, Mendoza was taken to the Dennis Avenue Health Center in Silver Spring, Md. for a blood test, to determine if he is infected with HIV, AIDS, Syphilis, Hepatitis B and/or Hepatitis C.
