Former maintenance man indicted, charged with sexual assault of disabled woman

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A former maintenance man was indicted on Tuesday, charged with the sexual assault of a disabled woman at the apartment complex where he worked.

Police say 45-year-old Robert Lopez-Parker worked as a maintenance man at the woman's apartment complex a year and a half before the assault.

The woman suffers from epilepsy and has had multiple surgeries. She is under a provider's care and is closely supervised due to her condition.

The victim told police that Lopez-Parker posed as a maintenance man to gain access to the apartment, telling the victim he was there to make repairs.

The victim told police that the man began taking off his clothes, telling her he was an old friend, asking why she didn't remember him.

The police report describes the alleged sexual assault in detail.

Multiple witnesses identified Lopez-Parker as a former employee, and said he was at the scene on the day of the assault. Witnesses told police he had been seen walking around knocking on doors.

Lopez-Parker was indicted by a Lubbock Grand Jury on Tuesday, May 15. He is currently being held at the Lubbock County Detention Center on $100,000 bond.
