Man arrested for raping 74-year-old woman in San Francisco

A San Francisco man has been arrested for repeatedly raping a 74-year-old woman, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

The victim said that is when a man forced her inside a home where he sexually assaulted her for several hours.

That man has been identified as 47-year-old Manuel Amador.

Officials say a dog belonging to Amador’s roommate also bit her multiple times.  

Authorities say after the assault, Amador forced the woman from the house and left her on the sidewalk down the street semi-conscious.

A booking photo of Amador has yet to be released.
