Jose Azpeitia: Wanted rapist convicted of luring woman into restaurant to prey on her

Franklin County prosecutors say convicted rapist, Jose Azpeitia, lured a woman into a restaurant in Pasco last year — locking the door behind her — then attacking and raping her.

He pleaded guilty in November, but never showed-up for his sentencing in January – and hasn’t been seen since.

He goes by the fake names:

He has several tattoos:

  • ‘Jordan’ on both forearms
  • ‘Brandon’ and praying hands on left shoulder
  • Eagle on right forearm
