On Wednesday September 13, 2018 the Aurora Police Department began investigating a reported sex assault of a 17 year-old girl that occurred in the 2100 block of South Vaughn Way in the afternoon.
On Saturday September 15, 2018 another sexual assault was reported to have occurred on Wednesday September 13, 2018 of another 17 year-old female in the 12400 block of East Jewell Avenue, also in the afternoon.

Initially, the investigators did not believe the two incidents were related due to discrepancies in the suspect’s description including the vehicle involved.
In both cases Aurora Police Investigators, Police Area Representative Officers, and School Resource Officers began working immediately to collect evidence, interview potential witnesses, and working with school officials of these sexual assaults to include potential suspect information.

Aurora Police Investigators worked with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to expedite DNA testing results, and reviewed the Sex Offender registry for potential leads.
Aurora Police Investigators received those DNA results approximately two weeks after the evidence was submitted, which led to the arrest of Ble Ghislain Kore DOB 10/2/1994 on Tuesday October 16, 2018 by the Aurora Police Department.

Kore will be prosecuted by the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s office with at least two counts of Colorado Revised Statute 18-3-402 Sexual Assault, a Class 2 Felony.
The Aurora Police Department is very concerned for the potential of other victims of Kore, both in and outside of Aurora. Victim Advocates are available to help all victims navigate the reporting process. Due to this concern, we are asking for any additional victims to please come forward and report that information by calling Aurora Police Department Sergeant Rudy Herrera at 303-739-6250.

Yesterday at approximately 1:30p.m. Officers from the Aurora Police Department arrested Ricardo Corral-Venegas, a 25 year old man who attempted to force his way into an apartment in the 1300 Block of South Geneva Way. Fortunately the woman was able to fight the man off, preventing him from gaining entry into her apartment.

Investigators believe that on October 4th Corral-Venegas forced his way into another apartment at the same location and sexually assaulted another woman.

Corral-Venegas was arrested for Sexual Assault, First Degree Kidnapping, First Degree Burglary and Criminal Attempt First Degree Burglary. He is currently being held at the Arapahoe County Jail.

Investigators believe their could be the possibility of other victims who were assaulted by Corral-Venegas. They are encouraged to contact Sex Crimes Detectives, Agent Jennifer Spanos at 303-739-6153 or Agent Del Matticks at 303-739-6367.

Since this case is in the hands of the District Attorney's Office (18th Judicial District) we will not be releasing any additional information about the case. A copy of the arrest affidavit can be obtained from the Colorado Judicial Department.
