Woman hopes someone turns in man who tried to kill her

BEAVERTON, Ore. -  A Beaverton woman hopes the public will keep an eye out for the man she says sexually assaulted her and tried to kill her.

Police have searched for the victim’s ex-boyfriend, 35-year-old Mauricio Beltran-Trejo, for months, but just this week the victim spotted him again.

She's worried he may try to kill her and said "he's back to finish the job." The victim said she believes he had every intention to kill her when he attacked her at a Beaverton apartment.

It wasn't easy for her to talk about what happened that April morning on Friday but she wanted to come forward in hopes someone will turn him in.

She wants to keep her identity secret because she’s still too scared and shaken by what happened.

Pictures show how badly she was hurt. Her neck was left bruised and bloody after she says Beltran-Trejo forced himself into her apartment and choked her until she blacked out. She woke up an hour later, naked from the waist down.  She ran out, a neighbor called 911 but when police got there, he was gone.

She said as long as he is out there, she will fear for her life and the lives of her five children.

"They don't want to go anywhere by themselves. They're afraid that he's going to see them and follow them back to our house," she said. “We can't go anywhere without looking behind us to make sure that nobody is following us. The nightmares haven't stopped and they're not going to stop until he's caught."

The woman says she saw Beltran-Trejo near Baseline and 1st Street in Hillsboro just this week. It was Tuesday and she says he was driving a blue truck, following her for a couple blocks.

She says she's been hiding from Beltran-Trejo ever since they broke up three years ago. She moved with her children to a new home before police say the suspect tracked them down at their Beaverton apartment in April and tried to kill her.

Police say they believe friends are likely helping hide Beltran-Trejo.  But the victim hopes someone who knows anything about where he is will have a change of heart and turn him in.  She's worried there will be more victims.

Anyone who knows anything about this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 503-823-HELP. 

Beltran-Trejo is about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 190 pounds. He’s known to hang out around Beaverton and Hillsboro.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
