Man arrested twice in one day for sex assaults

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A man is behind bars Tuesday on two separate sexual assault charges.

His neighbors said they’re shocked by these allegations.

We don’t know much about this case, but that’s not stopping neighbors from being concerned over this case.

Police arrested 69-year-old Johnathan Marmolejo on Monday on charges for the sexual assault of a 20-year-old woman.

After Marmolejo was arrested, police got information about another possible sexual assault, this time on a girl under 18.

Following another investigation, Marmolejo was arrested again while still in jail–this time on charges of sexual assault on a child.

He’s recently lived in the area of Michigan Avenue and University Drive.

Frank Garcia lived across the street from him and he said all this is surprising.

“I would never have thought there was a problem like that in his household, or in his personal life. He never let on anything like that and it really surprises me, because usually I can spot out an individual that has problems like that,” said Garcia.

Which is why he’s on edge.

“It is very scary, because I have two granddaughters that live here and I have three other grandkids, so a total of five grandkids,” said Garcia.

This type of case is something people are getting used to.

“It quite doesn’t surprise me, because you just never know about your neighbors anymore,” said Garcia.

There’s a lesson to learn from this.

“Have to be careful with your neighbors and who your kids hang around with,” said Garcia.
