Robert Flores: DNA evidence finally catches up with him.
DNA evidence and a photo array have cracked a horrific 11-year-old rape case, police say.

In the wee hours of March 21, 2000, a local woman had just returned home from visiting her brother in the hospital. After putting her kids to bed and hanging up some clothes, she noticed a light was on and heard some noises coming from her kitchen. When she went to investigate, according to court documents, she found the ogreish Robert Flores there, clad only in a pair of socks and clutching a knife. (Flores was a stranger to his victim then.)

The woman lunged for the knife and cut herself in the process. According to a probable cause report, Flores then told her that if she continued to resist, the kids would wake up and he would kill them. The woman then complied with his demands.

The report states that Flores then got behind her, held the knife to her throat and marched her to the bedroom of one of her kids, where he forced her to disrobe and raped her.

The woman called police after her attacker left, and they were able to get a DNA sample. Eleven years later a match was found -- Flores, now 38 years old and an inmate in San Antonio's Dominguez State Jail. Police then presented the woman with a photo array and she positively identified Flores as her attacker.

According to court records, Flores once lived across the street from the West Alabama Icehouse and has a lengthy Harris County rap sheet. (Other records show an address on Branard Street nearby.)

In 1990, he was sentenced to ten years in prison for a crack conviction, but was out on the streets again by 1993, when he was busted for indecent exposure. Two years later he was popped for assault, for which he did 70 days in the county jail.

In March of this year, the 5-5, 282-pounder was convicted of dealing meth and cocaine and sentenced to 15 years in prison, where his DNA was evidently taken. And now it looks like he probably won't be getting out of there for a hell of a lot longer than that -- he is charged with first-degree felony aggravated sexual assault.

Why did it take so long to match his DNA if he was in jail all those times?  I'm confused.

Holy. Freakin' . Fballs. This story blows my mind. I have known this guy for 15 years. Though he is far from perfect, he has always been such a fun-loving and good-natured guy. Yeah he had his moments where he could be a condescending ass, but everyone gets that way sometimes. If you were in the scene, he was actually one of the nice guys-- a friend! There I was thinking thinking his worst qualities were his horrid house-keeping skills and the fact that he was a republican. Well I just got schooled. Seriously Bobby?

I knew this guy for years. He was always creepy, but I never thought he was a violent rapist. We hung at the WAIH all the time.

Ugh.

I too have met this guy at many scoial events(Texans games and a couple parties)  and he seemed like an innocous guy.  Good humor and even sweet.  He was a little creepy because of his looks, but he seemed to make up for it with his personality.  Anyone reading this, you would never know that he was capable of this, and I am very intuned to human nature. I can tell you why he got out...he seems incredibly nice and personable almost victimized by his looks.  I'm sickened I have even met him...wow just completely floored and sickened..may this woman find some peace that he is behind bars and hopefully never gets out.  I have a feeling there is more to come.

I have written to Bob in prison. I asked him to consider what he has put his victims through. Told him to come clean and stop worrying about leaving prison. He needs to worry about how God will judge him. I like Bob and it is hard to just stop liking him. His physical deformities and skin disease has made him an outcast in many ways. I am not defending Bobs actions and he must be punished. It just seems that some sincere human contact from people that were not trying to buy drugs from Bob and then laughing his back, might of kept this from happening. A little human kindness goes a long way. I am sure that if it had been shown to Bob at an early age, his victim and her family may of never had this happen. I know Bobs family is distraught, the woman he attacked will be scarred for ever, and my witty friend Bob will spend his life in prison. To the woman that was attacked, we are truely sorry and may God heal your wounds. We are a tough group and there is no honor in harmong women, children, or innocents.

I have known Bobby for twenty years. He has been a good friend to me. He worked at my business. I have left him alone at my house with my wife and kids numerous times. He goes to church and observes lent every year. He suffers from a debilitating skin diease and had a hair lip untill he was in his twenties. He made up for this with a wicked sense of humor. I knew that he sold weed but I have never seen him become violent. This just shocks me to the core. For him to threaten kids and to rape a woman. You never know what is deep in the heart of a person. Bobby, ask God to forgive you, and  then take your punishment like a man. If there are other victims come clean. You are now fighting for your mortal soul.Do what is right, do not make it worse on your victim and family. 

YOU SICKO BOBBY!!!

Wow, that's fucked up. I also knew this dude, used to work with him. I always considered him a nice guy with a good sense of humor. I was aware of his petty drug crimes, I even bought weed from him a few times. But holy shit, rape!! Not only that, but to threaten to kill children and then raping a mother in front of her child. That's some sick shit! Beeline Bobby, we hardly knew ye.

I knew this guy since jr high. Never known him to do anything but sell drugs. Im stunned at the rape charge. Its shocking to have known someone all these years and then find out hes accused of a awful cold case sexual assault. If hes guilty i hope justice gets served and he pays a hefty price. Haven't had any contact with the guy in years so i figured he got busted selling drugs.

Sentenced to 10 years for a crack conviction, but out in 3...  How does this guy keep getting let back out on the streets again?  He's obviously not fit to function in society.  Lock him up & keep him there already.

I grew up with this piece of shit in down the road in my neighborhood and in my high school! He was always on some sort of illegal drug or dealing it out of his sisters/mothers home in Glen Cairn off Keith Harrow! For this monster to be so close to home it makes you wonder who your neighbors really are! I hope they pound it to his ass in more ways than one!Truly gut wrenching to know that the victim had to go thru the nightmare already once, deal with the nightmares after for years so it could come back surface and have to relive this again! My prayers are with her and her family at this time!

For real?!?

What's scary is... I knew this guy pretty well, or so I thought. We had mutual friends and I was in his presence multiple times a week at that very same point in time. What's more is, he was very likable, even charming. I had NO IDEA he was a scum bag. Even my Mom liked him. And I lived across the street from this sick 'F'!!! This is so troubling, I don't even know what to think...

Not to make light of this guy's pathetic existence and actions, but that set of tags has to be an all-timer: "Cocaine, Meth, Rape" 

I mean, who searches for that? Who?!
