SAN ANTONIO - A man charged with sexual assault posed as a maintenance worker in order to get into the victim's apartment, court documents state.

David Baldomero Rodriguez, 28, was arrested Sunday and charged with aggravated sexual assault after police say he sexually assaulted a woman July 6.

The victim told police Rodriguez knocked on her door and identified himself as a maintenance worker looking into a leak.

The victim told investigators Rodriguez went into her bathroom to see if a leak downstairs was coming from her apartment, according to an arrest affidavit.

When the woman went to check on the man's progress, she said the man had a stocking-type mask over his face and forced the woman onto her bed. 

Rodriguez, the affidavit states, told the woman "it was his last time of having fun" and forced the woman to perform a sex act on him. Court documents state he threatened to kill her if she didn't comply.

Four days after the attack, the woman realized who the attacker was and provided police with Rodriguez's name and a photo of him.

Investigators got in contact with Rodriguez on Aug. 22, and he agreed to come in for an interview on Aug. 24, but the affidavit states he never showed up or called.

On Sept. 5, investigators obtained a search warrant for Rodriguez's DNA, but when police went to his workplace and home, he was nowhere to be found and the residence appeared to be vacant.

On Sept. 6, investigators were informed Rodriguez abruptly resigned from his job two weeks prior.

Police obtained a warrant for Rodriguez's arrest and took him into custody on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated sexual assault.
