Man sought in second sex assault on teen
September 30, 2015
Police are looking for Rogelio "Rocky" Mendez in connection with an alleged sex assault on a child — the second such accusation pending against the 46-year-old Glenwood Springs man.
Mendez, who was working as a landscaper in the Aspen area, was arrested in July after a teenage girl told police that he had touched her inappropriately through her clothes. He was later released on bond.
On Friday, another teen came forward and said she had been raped by Mendez. After an interview in which she described some of his scars and a medical exam, a warrant was issued for Mendez's arrest.
Mendez has not been seen since he left work Friday. Anyone with information is encouraged to call 970-384-6500 or visit http://glenwood police.com/crime-tips.
