    According to the victim's attorney, she told police that an unknown man, later identified by police as Suazo-Martinez, approached her in the area of 1202 Commonwealth Ave. and started to make conversation. She declined to engage in conversation, police said.

    The victim said the suspect then took her phone and keys. She said she continued to walk towards her home when Suazo-Martinez allegedly pulled her into the alley.

    Authorities said thinking she was going to be raped, the victim told Suazo-Martinez, "I live close by. Let's move to my apartment."

    When they got there, the suspect was greeted by her roommates who took a photo of him before he took off. That photo is how police were able to track him down.
