Tuesday night, nearly three days after a woman reported being sexually assaulted near the Baylor Medical Center DART station in Deep Ellum, Dallas police released a photo of a man they've identified as a person of interest in the assault.

Hours later, police made an arrest. "As a result of that broadcast, the Dallas Police Department received multiple tips which led to the identification of Roy Gutierrez, a 40-year-old Latin male," the department announced in a bulletin.

At approximately 10:15 p.m. last night, police arrested Gutierrez at the DART West End Transfer Station in Downtown Dallas. He is charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault and is in the Dallas County Jail on $100,000 bond.

According to DPD, a 29-year-old woman got into a car with Gutierrez in 400 block of North Malcolm X Boulevard. He then sexually assaulted her in the car, the woman told police. After getting out of the car, the woman called 911 and responders took her to the nearby Baylor Medical Center.

Wendy Birdsall has survived so much.

Homelessness. Crack addiction. Run-ins with the law. Being raped 11 years go.

“They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger,” says Birdsall, 43.

Clean now for seven years and attending Southern Methodist University, Birdsall hadn't thought of that rape in years. Last month, she came home to find a card on her door telling her to call an investigator. She thought at first perhaps something from her past had come back to haunt her.

When she finally met with the investigator, she learned that police had a suspect in her rape. His name is Roy Gutierrez, a suspect in a series of attacks dating back more than a decade.

“I was really shocked that they found the guy,” she says.

When she saw his picture, she says knew it was the man who attacked her – the same man accused of raping a young woman behind a building on the edge of Deep Ellum in June.

“All these years, I had no idea what his name was,” she says.
