Authorities have arrested a man they say snatched a 74-year-old woman off a San Francisco street and raped her over five hours before leaving her semi-conscious on the sidewalk.

Reports say 47-year-old Manuel Amador is being held in connection with the May 10 attack. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Amador was arrested Friday and is facing a rape by force or violence charge, according to jail records. 

He’s being held in the San Francisco County Jail without bail. 

The woman was walking near a park around 8 a.m. on May 10 when a man pulled her up a driveway and into a house. Authorities say a pit bull belonging to the man’s roommate repeatedly bit her. Amador then locked the woman in a room where he repeatedly raped her.

Authorities say he then dressed her, dragged her back out and left her barely conscious on the sidewalk, where a passerby found her.

Amador is scheduled to appear in court Thursday at 9 a.m.
