A Mexican National, Adan Lopez-Perez, has been charged by Chandler Police for sexual assaults that occurred in 1997. Lopez-Perez, who lived in Chandler in 1997, was required to provide a DNA sample while in federal custody on a charge of unlawful entry into the United States.

According to Chandler Police Detective Seth Tyler:

In September of 1997, a 22-year-old female was sexually assaulted by an unknown Hispanic male at Hoopes Park located at 601 W. Mesquite Drive. Ten days later, an 18-year-old female was sexually assaulted by an unknown Hispanic male inside her home at the 400 block of West Jasper Drive. Physical evidence was gathered from both crime scenes, to include DNA.

Five years later, the Chandler Police Department learned the DNA profiles matched the same person in each case. This confirmed the belief by the original investigators in 1997 that both crimes were committed by the same assailant.

In April of this year, the DNA from both cases matched to 43-year-old Adan Lopez-Perez. Lopez-Perez, a Mexican national who lived in Chandler in 1997, was in federal custody on a charge of unlawful entry into the United States. While in custody, federal law required Adan to provide a DNA sample. On April 8, 2019, detectives arrested Lopez-Perez for his alleged involvement in both sexual assaults. Lopez-Perez was later booked into the Maricopa County Jail on five counts of Sexual Assault, two counts of Sexual Abuse, three counts of Aggravated Assault, two counts of Kidnapping, and one count of Burglary.


  1. First the Honduran, now this POS….. So glad to know they have to submit to the DNA tests. Word gets out, and perhaps it will deter border crossings by anyone who has committed a crime here before. DNA evidence is regularly obtained from many crime scenes and victims (not just rape). Hope the message is loud and clear “Come back, you smirking scumbag, and we will get you.” Yeah, wipe that obnoxious grin off his face. That smirk chills me to the bone.

  2. How do I send a News Press Release to you all to see if you are interested in following up….. or printing it as a Letter to the Editor?

  3. Wanda, what do you want? Him running around, back and forth across the border, into our country, committing these crimes and assaults on women? You’ve got to be kidding! Happy day he was arrested!! Would much rather house and feed this scum bag than worry about him running loose! Jeez!
