ORANGE COUNTY, FLORIDA: Authorities in Florida are on the lookout for a registered sex offender named Bruce Whitehead who has the term "Sacrifice" tattooed on his face in connection to a horrifying rape case where they claim the victim was mutilated.

Orange County Sheriff's Office stated that investigators are looking for 54-year-old Whitehead in connection with a severe sex assault that happened in Orlando on Saturday, December 10. Whitehead has been called a "brutal rapist," and he is wanted for questioning. The victim was approached by Whitehead while out walking near a strip club off Pine Hills Road close to North Lane, according to a redacted incident report that ClickOrlando was able to obtain. The victim reportedly got into Whitehead's car willingly and they made a little stop at a 7-Eleven store to buy water. Following that Whitehead continued to drive to a different location, where he pulled over and went up to the passenger door where the woman was seated. The report states that the ex-convict forced the woman to exit the vehicle at knifepoint before raping her when she refused to engage in consensual sexual intercourse with him.

Whitehead is accused of mutilating the victim during the incident, however, officials did not go into detail about her wounds. Deputies were summoned when Whitehead ran away. They discovered the victim "scared and shocked." She informed the authorities that she believed Whitehead would murder her.

The woman was rushed to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where officials believed she would make a full recovery. Cpl Evan Avila of the Orange County Sheriff's Office stated, "In my time here at the sheriff's office, this is probably one of the more egregious offenses, which is why we're working so diligently to bring him into custody," as reported by WESH.

According to Orange County law enforcement and details found on the Duval County Sex Offender Registry website, Whitehead was sentenced to 20 years in jail in 1986 after being found guilty of kidnapping, armed sexual battery, and first-degree attempted murder.

Avila stated, "Personally, I would qualify him as a monster. That's my personal take." Whitehead has many teardrop tattoos on his left cheek as well as the term "Sacrifice" inked across his forehead in Gothic font. "His tattoos are unmistakable. If you spot him, call 911 immediately," the sheriff's office warned the public.
