An illegal alien from El Salvador, Jorge A. Rivera-Aleman, 37, has been charged with the rape of a 13-year-old girl when she returned home from school. Police have arrested him and are doing DNA testing that they suspect will tie him to multiple rapes in the area. Rivera-Aleman was reportedly here just here to get a job Americans wouldn't do.
Jorge A. Rivera-Aleman, who prosecutors said lived in a room on Kodiak Drive in Silver Spring for the past two months, was charged Monday with first-degree rape and burglary for allegedly attacking a 13-year-old girl from Colesville after she came home from school in November. In two separate cases, Rivera-Aleman was charged with first-degree burglary and attempted burglary of two homes in the White Oak area of Silver Spring in the past week.
At a hearing in District Court in Rockville yesterday afternoon, Assistant State's Attorney Donna Fenton said that Rivera-Aleman confessed to rape in interviews with authorities and that he was "a danger to the community." Judge Thomas L. Craven denied bond in each of the cases. If convicted, Rivera-Aleman faces a life sentence for rape and a 20-year sentence for burglary.
Authorities said DNA samples from Rivera-Aleman will be tested for a link to at least four other attacks against women and teenage girls since March 2003. The wave of attacks prompted police to form a task force and school officials to warn parents to be vigilant.
Authorities said Rivera-Aleman, a native of El Salvador, was living in the United States illegally but did not say how long he had been in Maryland or whether he had a job.

Just raping the women and girls no one else will rape, right?
These people are from a filthy place. They do not have the same morals and culture as we do. They believe females are only for one thing - reproduction and sex. Therefore, they don't think it is wrong to rape. They rape their own daughters in El Salvador. I know -- I have been there.
