A man is charged with sexually assaulting a woman while out on bond for two robberies.

Prosecutors say Rolando Cortes, 20, attacked the victim at knife point late Wednesday night while she was walking home from the gym in the 4300 block of West Lawrence Avenue.

They say Cortes pulled the woman into an alley and assaulted her there, then assaulted her again in the courtyard of a nearby church.

Police say Cortes told the woman he was doing it because he was going to jail in a few weeks.

Cortes made the woman give him her number after the attacks, then called her while she was at the police station filing a report.

Cortes appeared in court Saturday, where he was ordered held without bail.

    He should be sent to House Arrest at the Home of the "Judge" who gave him Bond on the Robberies.

    A N D that poor Woman should SUE SUE SUE SUE SUE SUE SUE SUE that so-called "Judge" who released the piece of Used TP on Bond (But of course he may have been influenced by "Rolando's" "Family" who OF COURSE wanted their Sweet Little Angel out of that horrible Jail right away.

    TOO BAD about Ms. Lady whatever……..

    It’s time to consider a concealed handgun for self-defense lady. A Taurus .357 revolver with a short barrel is a good choice. Don’t give this guy another chance.
