    Eric Sanchez, 37, is wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for a violent incident that happened in Luling back in March 2017.

    "It's a family night at the house where they're watching a movie on the mattress in the living room and when Eric's girlfriend falls asleep, she's woken up by Eric touching her in a sexual way," said Deputy U.S. Marshal Brandon Filla.

    The victim told Sanchez to stop, and that's when he pulled a knife on her and put it to her throat.

    "He says, 'If I can't have sex with you, nobody will,' and that's when she receives this violent injury," said Filla.

    The victim ran to a neighbor's house and got to a hospital, but Sanchez got away. U.S. Marshals said he has ties to Central Texas, but may have gone to his native Mexico.

    "Anywhere between Garfield and Luling is a great possibility, or anything further south which may even be south of the border into Mexico," said Filla.

    Sanchez is 5'6 and weighs 130 pounds. He may also have a visible scar on his nose. If you have any information on his whereabouts call the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force at 512-800-4213.
