She said the attack left her traumatized and living in constant fear, WSBTV reported.
“When I take my dog outside, I’m constantly worried someone is going to shove me into their car and drive away,” she said. “It’s little everyday things like this that will never be the same for me.”
On June 21, 2015, Rendon-Villasana sped off with a 19-year-old woman in the back of his car after dropping off her male friend at a hotel at Tower Place and Piedmont Road, the release said.
Her friend called Atlanta police to report the kidnapping, and the woman was found on Lakemore Drive by a good Samaritan after being raped by Rendon-Villasana, the release said.
Four months later, he did almost the exact same thing to a 22-year-old woman after dropping off her male friend at his home, the release said. Sandy Springs police spotted his Kia Sorrento about 14 miles from the man’s home, but Rendon-Villansana ran away and escaped police.
During the search of his Kia, seven pairs of used female underwear were found, the release said. He was arrested one day later in Marietta.
He was convicted of 10 charges between the two incidents, including rape, aggravated assault with intent to rape and kidnapping, Fulton County Jail records show. He also had an immigration customs enforcement hold placed on him.
