SAN ANTONIO -- Police are searching for a man who reportedly broke into a West Side home and attacked a woman.
The attack happened at a home in the 400 block of Cable Drive shortly after 1:00 p.m. Sunday. Investigators say a woman inside the home walked in on a man who apparently broke in through a bedroom window. She told officers the man threatened to hurt other family members inside the home if she didn't lock the bedroom door. She said he then tied her up with black electrical tape and Ethernet cable. She told officers he said "this is gonna hurt" and "you're going to learn" and then got on top of her and cut her on the stomach and the chest with a knife he found in the room.
When the woman told him her father was on the way to her house, the man left through the bedroom window. The woman was able to free her wrists and crawl out into the hallway of her home and call out for help. She was treated by EMS at the scene.
Police spent part of the afternoon searching for the suspect, who is described as Hispanic, is about 5' 10" tall, and weighs about 190 pounds. He has a light complexion, a medium build, and brown eyes. He is also reportedly missing a tooth. At the time of the alleged attack, he was wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans, and a bike mask
