Alejandro Done, the South End man facing a laundry list of sexual assault charges, was arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court on two counts of rape, aggravated rape, kidnapping, assault with intent to rape and one single charge of armed robbery in connection with four assaults that occurred in South Boston and on the Esplanade.
Done was held without bail. He is currently serving a 12 to 14 year sentence for similar crimes which he plead guilty to in Middlesex County.
Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley said that DNA evidence, witness statements and “unmistakeable patterns of conduct” linked Alejandro Done, 46, of the South End with at least four instances of sexual assault. Each of these instances involved women who were walking alone on weekends during the summer months. He described these random attacks as vicious and predatory acts from a dangerous person.
Conley described these random attacks as vicious and predatory acts from a dangerous person. Having evaded authorities for years, Done was finally linked to at least four of these attacks through evidence obtained from the National DNA Index.
Prosecutors said Done posed as an Uber driver in December 2014 and violently raped and physically his female passenger before driving back to her home in Cambridge. He was arrested not long after the victim immediately went to the hospital for a rape kit, the results of which matched Done's DNA.
In total, the almost decade's worth of Boston-area instances took place in July 2006 in Joe Moakley Park in South Boston, in July 2007 at the Esplanade and in two more incidents in 2009.
