Seattle police are looking for an accused rapist who detectives say attacked a co-worker at the hotel where they both worked.

Take a look at Oscar Cisneros.

A maid at the Travelodge Hotel on Aurora Avenue North says he sexually assaulted her there five times over the past three years.

He worked as an unofficial handyman at the hotel.

The main told detectives Cisneros would wait until she was alone in the room, then come in and push her on the bed and rape her, then threaten to have her fired or deported if she told anyone.

The last time, she fought back and says he grabbed her hand and twisted it. Detectives say they struggled and she scratched his face and escaped.

Now, Cisneros has a $150,000 warrant for his arrest.

“This guy is horrific, he needs to be off the street. He has a vehicle. Somebody out there knows where he’s at. Let’s get him off the street before he harms another gal,” says retired detective Myrle Carner, now director of Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.

Police say Cisneros is driving a 2004 red Ford 350 pickup.  He’s 5-foot-4 and weighs 155 pounds. If you know where detectives can find this accused rapist, call an anonymous tip into:
