A 7-year-old girl was raped earlier this month by a man staying at her home in Puyallup, according to the Puyallup Police Department.

Marcus F. Cordova, 39, is being sought in connection with the Nov. 5 rape, the department said. Police have described him as white, weighing about 180 pounds, with multiple facial and head tattoos.

According to investigators, Cordova works in construction, and was staying with the victim and her mother at the time of the assault.

Cordova is also wanted by the state of Colorado for probation violations, police said.

Investigators are asking anyone with information on Cordova’s whereabouts to call the Puyallup Police Department Major Crimes Unit tip line at 253-770-3343.
