A former police officer from Mexico was found guilty Wednesday in the rape of a woman in Aurora, Co., where the authorities said he ordered his victim to put down her 1-year-old son prior to the attack.

Ricardo Corral-Venegas, 27, was armed with a butcher knife on Oct. 4, 2016, when he forced his way into the apartment of his 26-year-old victim, police said.

He returned days later to the same complex and tried to force his way into another apartment, but an 18-year-old girl, fought against him, preventing him from entering, authorities said.

The police arrested him later in the day after they saw the suspect at a Buffalo Wild Wings, the Denver Post reported.

During the interrogation, he reportedly cried, saying there is “something was wrong with his head.” Moments later, he acted as if he didn’t know why he was being questioned, a police report detailed. Court reports indicate that Bead-Venegas told the police he had a duel personality.

According to authorities, Corral-Venegas is a former police officer from Chihuahua, Mexico, where he worked for four years.

He allegedly used a red motorcycle and did a courier with sexually attacking women in Mexico – a trick that the Mexican media refer to him as the “Motorized Rapist.”

Bead-Venegas previously deported back to Mexico in the United States illegally, the Denver Post reported.

An Arapahoe County jury found him guilty of sexual assault, kidnapping and burglary as well as the use of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

He is currently being held without bond, where he faces a maximum of 92 years in prison.
