DENVER (CBS4) – A man accused in the kidnapping and sexual assault of a woman more than a decade ago was charged on Monday.

Lynn Kimbrough with the district attorney’s office said Dony Salazar, 30, was charged with second-degree kidnapping and sexual assault with a deadly weapon.

Kimbrough said the victim, who was 40 at the time, was attacked while waiting at a bus stop at 38th Avenue and Tejon Street the morning of Dec. 16, 2000.

“The charges allege that Salazar grabbed her and forced her at gunpoint into the backyard of a nearby vacant home where he repeatedly sexually assaulted her,” Kimbrough said in a statement. “No one was arrested in the case at the time. It was reopened as part of Denver’s Cold Case Project.

Salazar was already serving a 20-year prison sentence for aggravated robbery. He is scheduled to be formally advised of the new charges on May 29.
