HOUSTON – Carlos Eduardo Guevara's father, Jose Carlos Guevara, talked Friday about the charges his son is facing.

Carlos Eduardo Guevara, 18, was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with a string of rapes between Pasadena and Missouri City.

Investigators said Carlos Guevara raped at least two women.

What happened?

Pasadena police said Carlos Guevara picked his victims as they were leaving Fitness Connection gyms. Investigators said he previously worked out at the Fitness Connection at the intersection of Fondren Road and Bissonnet Street.

The first attack happened on April 1. The rape victim told investigators she left the gym around 11:45 p.m. and was confronted by Carlos Guevara as she pulled up to her Missouri City home.

Carlos Guevara wore a black ski mask to hide his identity during the attacks, police said. Police said the mask was recovered from his home after his arrest.

Earlier this week, while police were alerting the public of the assailant, they told the public to be aware of a green Ford Mustang with a unique front-side panel. A Crime Stoppers tip led investigators to a Southwest Houston home Thursday.
