SAN MATEO, Calif. (KRON) — After three hours of jury deliberation, a Redwood City man has been convicted on all counts for violent sexual assaults that took place in 2020, according to the San Mateo District Attorney’s Office.

Alejando Vanegas Guevara, 29, was found guilty of five felonies including two counts of forcible rape which were the result of three separate sexual assaults that occurred in 2020.

According to prosecutors, around 10:40 p.m on Aug. 5, 2020, a 62-year-old woman was sitting at a bus stop after work near 9th Avenue and El Camino Real when Guevara grabbed her. He then dragged her behind newsstands nearby, beat her unconscious and then raped her, according to the DA.

A jogger running nearby saw her on the ground with Guevara standing over her and informed police. Police arriving on scene found the victim unresponsive, with her pants pulled down, and “significant trauma” to her face, head and pelvic area.
