A Maryland woman woke up from a seizure to a stranger sexually assaulting her. 

The woman was returning home from a local 7-Eleven in Germantown, Maryland, when she experienced a seizure that left her unconscious near a bus stop. It is unclear the amount of time the woman was unconscious, however, when she awoke there was a man with his hand down her pants, according to local police reports.

The alleged attacker, identified as 41-year-old Francisco Roberto Sanchez, reportedly fled the scene when the victim awoke but was taken into custody after the victim spotted Sanchez two days later during her commute, WJLA, an ABC affiliate in Washington, D.C., reported on Friday.

WJLA cited from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that Sanchez is "unlawfully present" within the U.S. and filed an immigration detainer on him.

Sanchez, who also goes by the name Javier Torres-Pantoja, was sent back to Mexico in 1999 when officials encountered Sanchez in Arizona, however, it is unclear when he returned to the U.S. 

Sanchez will appear at the Montgomery County District Court on Dec. 15 on possible charges of third-degree sex offense, fourth-degree sex offense, second-degree assault and upwards of 21 years in prison. 

The arrest of Sanchez comes more than two months after Maryland passed new laws pertaining to sexual assault cases. One law states that a sexual assault victim doesn't have to physically resist for the attack to be prosecuted.

“We definitely improved Maryland’s laws for survivors of sexual assault on a number of different levels,” Lisae Jordan, executive director of the Maryland Coalition Against Sexual Assault, told the Baltimore Sun.
