Santiago Martinez-Flores is a 48 year old Mexican national who illegally immigrated to the United States. His known aliases are ‘Felipe Coeto’ and “Isidro Ramos Flores.”
He had been previously deported in May 2001 after a two year prison sentence.
Martinez-Flores had a criminal history that spans decades. He served time for assault, criminal mischief, unauthorized use of vehicle and much else.
Now, he is accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year old girl from Portland. He must have snuck back into the country sometime before the sexual assault. During the assault, the girl broke away and ran into her parents room. The father got his gun, but Martinez-Flores had already fled. It’s a shame he did not shoot him for his transgression against the poor little girl. They found physical evidence linking Martinez-Flores to the crime.
The 9-year olds sister was sleeping only a few feet away from her when the incident occurred. She was able to describe the attacker before he got away.
This crime against the child is not only disgusting, but absolutely terrifying. There is currently a manhunt underway.
The girl was sexually assaulted as she slept in her apartment on Feb. 26, according to investigators. But she woke up during the incident and, after the intruder tried to hold her down, the girl was able to break free and run to her parents’ room, officials said. The girl’s father quickly retrieved a gun and ran to confront the man, who had already escaped. However, the girl was able to describe her attacker and authorities said they found physical evidence linking Martinez-Flores to the crime. Martinez-Flores may be using the alias “Felipe Coeto” or “Isidro Ramos Flores.”
“It’s a terrible thing, and to have somebody take advantage of a child like that I think is one of the worst things that a human being can do,” neighbor Debra Griffith told KATU2. “I hope they put them away for a long, long time.”
