Before Allegedly Killing Muslim, Illegal Immigrant Was Accused Of Sexual Assault In Front Of A Child

The suspect charged with the kidnapping and murder of a Muslim girl in Reston, Virginia earlier this month had been accused of sexually assaulting a woman in front of a child one week before.

Darwin Martinez Torres, a 22-year-old man from El Salvador who entered the United States illegally, was detained by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement after he allegedly kidnapped 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen while she walked with her friends to the All Dulles Area Muslim Society mosque.

Torres got out of his car and chased after the teens with a baseball bat in a fit of road rage. The teens were able to scatter and run away — except for Hassanen, whom Martinez Torres is suspected of kidnapping and killing. Her body was found hours later in a manmade pond.

This wasn’t the first time Torres has been suspected of violence. A week before the brutal slaying of an innocent teenage girl, a woman said he sexually assaulted her in front of a child. The woman ultimately decided not to press charges, telling authorities she was afraid of her attacker. She also said he was a member of the gang MS-13, according to a Child Protective Services report, which got involved in the case because a child was present during the attack.

The woman went to the hospital to receive treatment for injuries sustained during the assault. She said Martinez Torres choked her and punched her.
