Three felony criminal sexual conduct charges against Tiodoro Vasquez Resendez, 34, of Willmar, were dismissed Jan. 5 because DNA evidence established that he was not the perpetrator of the crime.

Resendez had faced two charges of third-degree and one count of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct after Willmar police were called on Dec. 14 by a man who reported that a friend, a 23-year-old woman, had been sexually assaulted. The officer interviewed the woman, who appeared to be quite low functioning. Another woman informed the officer that the woman is a vulnerable adult who functions at the level of a 5-year-old. The woman was taken to Rice Memorial Hospital and examined.
