In Harlingen, a rape suspect is behind bars, thanks to the victim’s son.
Authorities say 28-year-old Juan Martinez was at a home off Bourbon Street early Thursday morning. When a woman who lived at the home, went to bed, he followed her into the bedroom and sexually attacked. The woman escaped to her 23-year-old son’s bedroom, who held Martinez down until police arrived. Martinez is being held on a $30,000 bond.
