Armed and Dangerous Suspect on the Loose

Authorities say he's armed, dangerous and on the loose. Lubbock police and the Hockley County Sheriff's Department need your help in finding Frank Santana. He's accused of raping an Anton woman, beating her husband and stealing their truck. That truck was found in Lubbock around 4:30 Wednesday morning and police believe Santana is in Lubbock.

But the story starts in Hockley County. That's where NewsChannel 11 tracked down the events of the crime. Sheriff David Kinney describes the events. "She let the dogs out, and went outside. When she walked back in this guy grabbed her by the hair and hit her in the face, he knocked her out and when she came to, he had tied her arms and legs."

It was 9:30 Sunday morning when an Anton woman was allegedly attacked and sexually assaulted. "The phone rang and that's when it all stopped, a truck pulled up and she thought it would be Roland (her husband). She screamed for Roland to call the law, but he walked in and he was attacked. Roland then said run, and she jumped out the window."

After three hours of being tortured, the woman finally made it to the Qwick Mart to call 9-1-1 to say her husband has been brutally beaten.

The sheriff said, "The call came in and the lady said she was bound and some guy had tied her up and was trying to kill her husband." The weapons authorities believe were used to critically injure the husband were a clothing iron and chili bowl.

"We asked her who might've done this and she gave us the guy's name." The name she gave was Frank Santana, a man who has done previous work for the victims. NewsChannel 11 also learned Santana previously served time in the Indiana State Penitentiary, and has an assault record in Chicago. Sheriff Kinney says, "I'd consider him very dangerous to beat somebody like he did, I'm sure he thought he killed him."

Again, Frank Santana is believed to be armed and dangerous. He's described as a Cuban man with a heavy Cuban accent. He's 6-feet tall and weighs about 240 pounds. He has tattoos on both arms, his back and chest. If you have any information that could help, call the Hockley County Sheriff's Department at (806) 894-3126, or call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
