An arrest warrant has been issued for the suspect in a Hays sexual assault that was reported early Sunday.
Tre Miekale Carrasco was last seen getting into a silver pickup mid-morning Sunday at a Colby truck stop that headed toward Interstate 70. According to press release from the Hays Police Department on Monday, authorities are no longer looking for the pickup, however.
Carrasco is wanted for rape and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on Sunday, according to a filing in Ellis County District Court records, although as of late Monday morning, no complaint with details of those charges was available in the court public records system.
HPD warned in the release Carrasco is still to be considered armed and dangerous. Any information on Carrasco’s location can be given to the HPD by calling 785-625-1011.
Carrasco was released Friday from Hutchinson Correctional Facility on post-release supervision after serving time there on a parole violation for a 2013 conviction for a Hays sexual assault.
According to Kansas Department of Corrections records, Carrasco was released to Colorado on out-of-state post release supervision in July 2018. On Oct. 18, he was listed as absconded and his location unknown. A warrant was issued the next day.
On Nov. 1, KDOC lists him being in Norton Correctional Facility on parole violation with no new sentence. He was moved to Hutchinson Correctional Nov. 6 and released in Ellis County on Friday.
Carrasco was arrested in 2011 when he was 16 after a July 1 assault on a 57-year-old woman in the 2900 block of Country Lane. He was charged as an adult with one count of aggravated criminal sodomy, one count of aggravated battery and one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was also charged as a juvenile with two counts of aggravated burglary for incidents earlier that year.
In a 2013 plea deal, he was sentenced for a total of 100 months for aggravated sexual battery, aggravated battery and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was given 622 days credit on his sentence for jail time served.
