This stems from an incident on December 8, 2016, when Colorado Springs police responded to an "urgent medical assist" in the 3000 block of West Colorado Avenue.There they found a minor and an adult woman. The woman claimed she had been sexually assaulted. 

Arrests warrants were not only issued for Menendez and Marrero in connection with this case but also for Joel Rodriguez. 


Rodriguez had already been arrested when the BOLO was issued in July. He was taken into custody on June 30 for Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor. 

This is an ongoing investigation. We are working to learn more details surrounding this case.
