The King County Prosecutor’s Office has charged Salvador Diaz-Garcia, 23, with indecent liberties in the molestation of 14-year-old Burien girl on June 25 at a Burien apartment complex.

Diaz-Garcia has also been charged with assault for a separate incident that occurred at the same complex on same day. Both victims look similar and both victims did not know Diaz-Garcia.

Diaz-Garcia remains in King County Jail with bail set at $100,000, and is charged with second-degree rape and assault.

King County Sheriff’s Office reports say that Diaz-Garcia “approached” the girl “and sexually assaulted her. The victim screamed and yelled and the defendant ran off.”

But deputies say he was not done, and “went to a neighboring complex and brutally attacked and raped another young girl.”

The prosecutor’s office says it is “extremely concerned for the defendant’s brazen, bold, and violent behavior towards young women.”

Charges say the attack was quite brutal – the victim was left with a bloody head, missing teeth, and only wearing her tank top. Her right ear was torn and dangling, she had damaged/missing front teeth, numerous cuts on her head, and her upper lip was torn. She was bleeding from multiple head injuries and was unable to talk, and was transported to Harborview.

The prosecutor wants the court to issue a “sexual assault protection order” for the two victims and a no contact order for Diaz-Garcia to have no contact with any minor, said the charges filed on July 18.

Some residents believe Diaz-Garcia is illegally in this country. He was identified as an illegal in a Fox News story, but the King County Sheriff’s Office does not ask under their policy not to inquire about immigration status.

Since he is jailed, agents of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may take him into custody under a federal warrant, likely only after his local case is completed. He could be deported after any conviction in this or another case.
