Police: DNA evidence connects fake ride-share driver to 2 CT sex assaults
A former Stamford man is accused of sexually assaulting two women while posing as a driver for a ride-sharing company.
Henry Revolorio-DePaz was charged with kidnapping and sexual assault in two different incidents – one in Stamford and one in Greenwich. Investigators think there may be more victims in western Connecticut.
Revolorio-DePaz was extradited from Kansas and appeared Wednesday in Stamford court, where he was formally changed.
Greenwich police began looking into Revolorio-DePaz in December after a woman reported being sexually assaulted. She had been at a bar in Stamford and requested a car through a ride-sharing app. She then got into a car she believed to be her ride and later discovered the driver was not who she thought he was.
Authorities say before she got to her destination, he ended up stopping the vehicle and sexually assaulting her. The victim was eventually able to escape the car and get help.
Police say investigators found security camera footage of the woman getting into the suspect's car. After reaching out to other local agencies, police say they learned of similar incidents in Fairfield County, including an open case in Stamford from 2016 that followed the same pattern.
Working together, police identified Revolorio-DePaz as their suspect through DNA evidence.
Authorities say they were able to track Revolorio-DePaz to Kansas, where he had recently moved. They worked with law enforcement there to arrest him and get him back to Connecticut.
Authorities are urging anyone who believes they may have been a victim of a sexual assault or has information concerning the investigation to call Greenwich Police Special Victims Section at 203-622-8030 or the Rowan Center, a sexual assault resource center, in Stamford at 203-329-2929.
