On November 26, 2010 The Davie Police Department investigated a sexual battery that occurred on the Robbins Park Property off of Hiatus Rd in Davie. A female was walking on the trails when a male came up behind her and pulled her shirt over her head and dragged her off the trail. After the offender removed all of the victims clothes, a sexual battery occurred and the male ran away. The victim then went back to her car to get her phone and call the police. DNA was collected from the victim, however, there was not a match due to the offender's DNA not in the system. The case at that point went cold.
Recent DNA technology provided by Parabon Nano Labs provided us with a composite and characteristic report of what the offender may look like. in early December of 2017, Davie detectives hit the field and began to search the area for any possible leads with this new information. Detectives came across a maintenance worker at Flamingo Gardens who was a possible match due to the resemblance of the Paragon DNA snapshot. Hugo Giron-Polanco voluntarily provided a DNA sample to the Davie detectives. Since Hugo was in the United States illegally the US Border Patrol was contacted and Hugo was held due to his immigration status.
On December 28, 2017 the DNA analysis came back concluding that the chances of randomly selecting an unrelated individual consistent with the major profile from the evidentiary sample is rarer than 1 in 400 Billion. That means that the the possibility that the offender is NOT Hugo Giron-Polanco is 1 in 400,000,000,000. Considering that there are less than 8 Billion people on the planet, we think those are pretty good numbers.
Hugo Gikron-Polanco is in custody and has been charged accordingly. The victim was notified and said that she did not know him.
