Cops believe the attacker shot the woman inside the car and sexually assaulted the survivor in Cleveland, Texas, the US, on Saturday, September 19.
Jose Marin Soriano, 59, – who may be armed – was last seen leaving his property in Cleveland in a grey Ford vehicle and is still on the run.

He told her he would delete the photos if she agreed to meet him.
One of the women alleged that he then pulled out a gun and sexually assaulted her.
