Kidnapper Likely Acted Alone

San Jose police say the man charged with raping and kidnapping a 9 year old girl most likely acted alone. Investigators had thought another person might have been involved because a surveillance camera showed a car pulling up next to the suspect´s car outside the girl´s home. Police said yesterday they stopped searching for another suspect.

Prosecutors say Enrique Sosa Alvarez raped the girl in her home last Friday before taking her to his home and repeatedly assaulting her. He dropped her off at a liquor store Sunday night.

Authorities say the girl helped police nab the suspect by memorizing key details, including his house number and several digits of his cell phone number.
