I hesitated to share this, because it is the most horrifying, nauseating thing I have read in a long time. I was deeply troubled reading this, but ultimately I decided to share it because I feel like I should, like I can't ignore this — the fact that it happened is horrific. I don't even know what else to say.
Boiled down to essentials, a Texas woman was raped 7 years ago at age 13 by a man named Abraham Solis. Solis was arrested again this month after the woman alerted police that he had shown up on her doorstep, said "Remember me?" and kicked in the door, and raped her again.
Solis was arrested after a high-speed chase. He ran after running his vehicle into a ditch but was brought down by a police dog, which I sincerely hope bit him in the most painful ways possible and will eventually cause him to get a life-threatening infection.
I am further horrified by the following sentences:
Investigators were active in tracking Solis because they feared for the 20-year-old victim’s safety, since after the sexual assault he told her that “this isn’t over,” the sheriff said.
Solis also has an active warrant from Edinburg police for the charges of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault.
On the upside, Solis is being charged with attempted felony instead of aggravated sexual assault with the hope of a harsher sentence. And if nothing I have said here has convinced you that this man deserves the harshest sentence possible, there is also this:
Solis has been identified as a member of the Valluco prison gang and has several previous arrests for assault, auto theft and drug possession, Treviño said.
At the time of the arrest, sheriff’s investigators also found an outstanding warrant for Solis in which he is accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend July 23; court records show he kicked her and punched her until she was unconscious.
I sincerely hope that wherever this young woman is, she will be okay, that her family is there with her, and that by all things holy that the police do everything they can to keep her safe. I wish I could do something for her. I know I probably can't and will never meet her. All I can hope is that she never, ever has to see this man again.
