SEATTLE (AP) — Authorities say a man convicted of raping a Seattle-area woman tracked the victim down and attacked her three days after he was released from jail.

The Seattle Times reports police are looking for 35-year-old Francisco Carranza-Ramirez who is wanted on charges of assault, harassment and intimidating a witness.

Authorities say the 32-year-old victim was strangled and beaten outside her White Center apartment building and in front of her toddler Sunday.

The King County Sheriff’s Office says the victim was moved to a safe location after she was released from the hospital.

Carranza-Ramirez was ordered to return to Mexico after he was released last week. He was convicted of third-degree rape from the September 2018 attack.

Authorities say Carranza-Ramirez is believed to still be in White Center area.
