Woman escapes man who rapes her, then jumps out window and runs to neighbor, NM police say

A 25-year-old man accused of breaking into a woman’s home and raping her in 2021 will go to prison, New Mexico officials said.

Jose Maldonado, of Clovis, was found guilty Feb. 27 in connection with the May 2021 assault, according to a news release from the Ninth Judicial District Attorney’s Office.

The victim woke up to Maldonado “standing over her as she lay in bed,” officials said.

He is then accused of getting on top of her and pulling down her shorts as she “struggled and screamed for help,” officials said.

“Maldonado forcefully pushed her face into the pillow and held her by the neck,” the district attorney’s office said.

When the victim was able to turn her head, she told Maldonado, “There’s someone walking by the window,” the prosecutor said.

When he went to check, the woman jumped out the bedroom window, ran to a neighbor’s house and called 911, officials said.

Maldonado’s DNA matched evidence found in the executed rape kit, the prosecutor said.

Maldonado was sentenced to 30 years in prison on charges of kidnapping, criminal sexual penetration and burglary, according to a news release.

After serving his prison sentence, Maldonado will remain on parole for at least five more years, officials said.

Clovis is located 220 miles southeast of Albuquerque.
