Affidavit: Sex Offender Accused of Kidnapping, Raping Woman

CORPUS CHRISTI - The arrest affidavit for registered sex offender Rudy Rubio alleges a woman was kidnapped from Haverhill Lane and sexually assaulted at Rubio's Automotive on South Padre Island Drive early Friday morning.

The 23-year-old victim told police she had stopped her car in front of a home to send a text to a friend when a man knocked on her window to ask what she was doing.

According to the victim, the man identified himself as a police officer and told the woman to get out of her car. She refused to open the door, but the man opened the door anyway and had her place her hands on top of the car.

She told police the man put her hands behind her back and forced her into his car by pulling her hair, then using a leather strap or belt to bind her hands. He's also accused of threatening to stab her with a knife.

The detailed affivadit states the woman was taken to the attic of an auto shop where a futon and table were set up. The victim told officers she prayed as she was sexually assaulted several times that night.

But when people started showing up for work, her kidnapper forced her to walk outside with him where he put her in a different car. The victim was then dropped off at her car on Haverhill Lane.

The victim drove home to tell her mother about what happened and to call police.

A nurse from Doctors Regional Hospital told police the victim explained she was blindfolded, forced to take cocaine and violated several times.

The victim later identified Rubio out of a photo lineup, plus identified his auto shop as the place she was taken, based on photographs provided by investigators.

Police put out an alert for Rubio on Tuesday, only saying he was wanted for aggravated sexual assault and kidnapping. It wasn't until early this morning that police caught up with Rubio.

Officers checking out an alarm call at Rubio's Automotive this morning found the owner, 50-year-old Rudy Rubio, on the property. Officials say he tried to run and got into a struggle with the officers.

Rubio's been a registered sex offender since his conviction in 2005 for multiple charges of indecency with a child by sexual contact.
