Dony Salazar's DNA ties him to rape a month before he stabbed a pregnant woman

The 2001 crime scene.
In January 2001, as 7News notes, Salazar became a reluctant local-news star after he was accused of stabbing a pregnant woman, age 25, after which he stole her truck and slammed it into a tree.

Making the situation even worse: The woman's two kids were inside the pickup, and both were injured in the crash.

Afterward, the then-eighteen-year-old Salazar vanished, with speculation that he had escaped to Mexico. But he was eventually arrested and in 2006, he was convicted of aggravated robbery with intent to kill, maim or wound.

He was sentenced to twenty years in stir for his actions, but he was eligible for parole on February 18 of next year -- at least before the latest development.

Another angle on the crashed truck.
Last November, the arrest affidavit reveals, the Denver Police Department crime lab obtained a DNA profile from a "rectal swab sperm fraction" taken at the time of the December 2000 sexual assault. And lo and behold, a forensic report recorded a hit with one Dony Salazar.

At that point, the case was reactivated, and in March, detectives went to the Colorado State Penitentiary to talk with Salazar. They showed him a photo of the victim taken within a year of the attack, but he said he didn't recognize her. And while he admitted to living close to the bus stop from which the woman was grabbed, he was "adamant" that he had never had sex with any female he'd met there.

The Denver DA's office allegations against Salazar -- second-degree kidnapping and sexual assault with a deadly weapon -- clearly indicate that prosecutors trust the DNA match much more than they believe his story. He'll be formally advised of the charges against him later this month.

This sequence of events show how invaluable evidence gathered by rape kits can be. On that, you can bet both DA Morrissey and the folks at 7News agree.

Look below to see a larger version of Salazar's booking photo, followed by the 7News report and the affidavit.

Had he not stabbed anyone, he'd either be receiving probation or an 18 - 24 month, D.O.C. sentence .

Colorado 'cradles' it's sex-offenders !!!

Rape isn't a high priority because it ISN'T considered violent amongst law enforcement or prison administrators . Had this guy NOT been a prior felon w/ his DNA on record, he could very well have gotten away w/ this horrible crime .

This case was about a knife stabbing I thought?? What does that have to do with hicapcity blah blah blah anyways? I'd rather have dinner with 10 guys that look like 'immigrant problem causers' to you than spend one night with one of you gun koo koos.

Did you just say the problems caused by the ENTIRE GROUP OF ILLEGAL WHITE IMMIGRANTS is less than the ones of this SINLGULAR SCUMBAG's? I don't think the percentages are on your side buddy. Bigotry and intellengece obviously don't go together

Nick, you wouldn't be saying that if he was white. And, yes, white people can be illegal immigrants, too.

@Kyle Williams Lmao! I feel you on that one.  I now have to fear white middle/upper middle class men when I go to school, or the mall now.  You never know when they'll start shooting.
