An illegal alien from El Salvador, who was previously deported from the U.S., was charged with the rape and a list of other charges after a woman in Long Island, New York, was attacked, beaten unconscious and was then raped.

Ever Martinez-Reyes, 24, was charged with rape, sexual assault, and other assault charges, and ordered to be held without bail at a Saturday arraignment, Fox News reported. Martinez-Reyes allegedly followed his female target around until he felt like he could get away with raping her, according to police. Martinez-Reyes originally entered the country illegally in 2010 before he was deported, however he illegally entered the U.S. again in 2014, according to ABC 7.

“When he assaulted her and knocked her out, he then proceeded to rape her,” Nassau Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder told Newsday. “She woke up and he knocked her out again and viciously continued to assault her.”

According to police, the victim came to after being knocked out by Martinez-Reyes and realized she was being raped. Martinez-Reyes then reportedly got up and ran. The victim had a broken jaw and was taken to the hospital after calling the police.

Martinez-Reyes faces up to 25 years in prison, if convicted.
