According to police reports unveiled in the courtroom, an enraged Perez believed the unrelated female victim was having an affair with her husband, and held her against her will and smeared her with hot jalapeno-like peppers in juice. At one point during the alleged assault, Perez allegedly instructed one of her daughters to bring an additional cup of the hot peppers in juice, based on court documents.
Perez, a Guatemalan immigrant who works at a local laundry, was charged with kidnap, rape, assault, and two counts of assault and battery, with hot peppers.
