99-Year Old Woman Among Rapist's Victims
Second Victim Was 81-Years Old
Jose Corrales Was Captured After A DNA Match
HIALEAH (CBS4) ― A Hialeah man has been denied bond for a horrific and heinous crime against two elderly women, ages 99- and 81-years old. Jose Corrales, 33, appeared in bond court Friday, charged with two counts of sexual battery, two counts of kidnapping and two counts of occupied burglary with battery.
According to detectives, the first incident occurred in Hialeah on June 22nd, when Corrales, an illegal alien working as a roofer, spotted the 99-year old woman while she was taking out her trash. Police say he had a brief conversation with her then followed her back to the front door and forced his way in.
The frail 99-year old woman attempted to fight back but was simply overpowered. Police say he pushed her to the ground with such force, that her dentures flew across the room.
She pleaded for her life as she was slapped and punched in the stomach, face, legs, arms and back, according to the police report. Eventually, she was grabbed by the neck and dragged into her bedroom where, police say, Corrales forced her to perform oral sex.
The second incident also occurred in Hialeah, but took place two months later on August 24th.
The victim in this case was an 81-year old handicapped woman with limited mobility. She was sitting inside her home when Corrales stood at her doorway, commented how hot it was outside and removed his shirt.
Speaking in Spanish, the 81-year-old woman told CBS4 Reporter Jorge Estevez how she did not lock her door in time, and he made his way inside and forced her to perform oral sex.
Corrales was captured after DNA taken at both scenes matched. When questioned by police, Corrales admitted his involvement in both crimes.
