Salvador Suarez Rodriguez, 27, is an “extremely violent suspect who may be attempting to flee the country,” the Modesto Police Department said in a Facebook post.

The victim, who was known to the suspect, called 911 to report that Rodriguez had just forced his way into her home, the post said. He prevented her from leaving several times, destroyed property in the home, and finally left with her cell phone, police said.

Police did not disclose where in Modesto the crimes happened. Some details are being withheld “due to the sensitive nature of the investigation,” the post said.
