GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A 30-year-old man has been arrested after he allegedly got a 14-year-old girl drunk and then raped her.

David Manuel Duran, 30, is facing charges of sexual assault, sexual abuse and child molestation.

The assault happened on May 3, 2012, according to court records. Duran was identified a few months later after investigators got a DNA match for him in the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS). But investigators could not find Duran at that time.

Duran was also wanted for a home invasion in Nevada. There was a warrant for his arrest in that case.

He ended up in the custody of the U.S. Marshals in Sept. When he was questioned about the sexual assault he told detectives he had did not remember what happened.

A DNA test was performed at that time. The results were returned in Dec. 26 and showed Duran's DNA matched the assailants DNA obtained from the rape victim in May.

Duran was arrested at his apartment in Surprise, Ariz. at 12221 West Bell Road on Jan. 7. He is being held with no bail.

The case was investigated by the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office because the incident did not occur within the Glendale city limits.

The Attack

Court records show that the victim in this case had been exchanging text messages with Duran before she willingly went to his apartment at 6706 North Dysart Road in Glendale, Ariz.

While she was at his apartment the victim consumed a "four Loko" alcoholic beverage. She told investigators that she woke up with Duran on top of her.

She tried to leave the apartment but Duran was blocking the door. When he went to put his clothes on the victim ran. She said Duran was chasing her so she got in a car with males she did not know. They took her to her aunt's house.

The victim's mother took her to a hospital where officials contacted law enforcement authorities.
