Lopez-Lara removed the victim’s clothes and gave her different clothes. Lopez-Lara allegedly then sexually assaulted the victim multiple times, even after several attempts by the victim to escape and telling him to stop.
The victim told police she was drunk after Lopez-Lara had given her a beer to drink.
At one time during the three days inside the mobile home, the victim hid in the closet. Eraz grabbed her by the neck and held her against the wall. The males would not let her leave and told her they would kill her if she left.
