Julio IturraldeLOS LUNAS, NM — Police say 27-year-old Julio Iturralde locked his girlfriend out of their hotel room before raping the woman’s 8-month-old daughter.

The couple were staying at a hotel in Los Lunas when the mother, 25-year-old Jasmin Davis, ran outside to get some items from the car. When she tried to re-enter the hotel room, she found the door was locked and heard her baby screaming.

After several minutes, Iturralde opened the door and Davis saw a “tremendous” amount of blood in her baby daughter’s diaper. She told police she wanted to get her baby to a hospital, but Iturralde refused to let her leave the room and he started smoking meth.

It wasn’t until the next morning, after she and Iturralde smoked meth together, that Davis took her baby to University of New Mexico Hospital. According to the complaint, Davis told hospital staff that she though her baby had been injured by a child she watched the day before.

Medical staff ended up calling law enforcement who interviewed Davis. She told them about the hotel incident and Iturralde was arrested and charged with criminal sexual penetration of a child, false imprisonment and child abuse. He is currently behind bars without bond.

After witnesses at the hotel said they spoke with Davis the night the child was raped and say she didn’t try to get them to get help for her baby, Davis was arrested on suspicion of child abuse, tampering with evidence and conspiracy.

The baby is still in the hospital where doctors are trying to reconstruct her internal organs. She is now in the custody of the Children, Youth and Families Department.

“When I first started in this career you would have a homicide or somebody that got beat up. Nothing of this nature – and nothing that goes to these extremes. Meth is probably the worst drug that I can ever think of,” said Valencia County Capt. Gary Hall.
