The Mexican national accused of raping three women in El Paso's Manhattan Heights neighborhood is headed to trial Monday morning.

Authorities claimed the 26-year-old broke into homes in the Manhattan Heights Area and raped three women in Summer 2013.

They added he attacked a fourth woman, but she fought him off. Valtierra Payan is also linked to a sexual assault case that was reported in Fort Worth, Texas in September 2012.
