In an updated description, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office today said the man was described as being Hispanic with dark skin and in his late 30s or early 40s. He was described as being 6-feet tall with a very thin build with dark, shoulder-length wavy hair that is graying.

Officials said he has a mustache and is either missing a front upper tooth or has a large gap between his two front teeth.

He was wearing a cream flower-print button-down shirt, black slacks and black shoes, and carried a small green suitcase, authorities said.

The woman was cleaning room 204 at the Holiday Inn Express, 3837 Tollgate Blvd., on July 1 when the man entered the room. Speaking in Spanish, the man told the housekeeper that she didn't make the bed well.

She looked at the bed, and when she looked back the man pulled a black handgun from his waistband. He told her to treat him well or he would kill her, the Sheriff's Office reported.

The man forced the housekeeper to undress at gunpoint. He then closed the drapes, sexually assaulted the woman and forced her to perform a sexual act on him with a gun to her head.

After the assault the man made the housekeeper wash out her mouth and shower. When she heard the door to the room close she got out of the shower, put on her clothes and went for help.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 793-9300.
