45 Year Prison Sentence for Sexual Assault following Kidnapping from Target Parking Lot

Dominic Barrios

Dominic Gabriel Barrios, DOB: 7-27-00, appeared in Jefferson County District Court on June 11, 2019 where he was sentenced to prison for 45 years in the kidnapping and sexual assault of a young woman from a shopping center parking lot in January, 2017.

Barrios was 16-years-old when he committed the offense. He was charged as an adult.

Barrios pled guilty on March 7, 2019 to Kidnapping (F2); Aggravated Robbery (F3); and Conspiracy to Commit Sexual Assault (F5); and one crime of violence.

The young woman had just gotten into her car in the Target parking lot at 50th and Kipling when Barrios got in the back seat of her car. Sitting directly behind her, he put his arm around her neck, held a knife to her throat, and told her to drive. Over the next two hours he drove her around, threatening her with the knife. He sexually assaulted her, and forced her to withdraw money using her ATM card. He eventually removed the battery from her phone and left her in an industrial area.

The young woman made her way to the home of her family and called 911. The Arvada Police Department immediately began an intensive investigation and identified Barrios within 24 hours.
