The Summit County Sheriff's Office is looking for 42-year-old Raymond C. Gates, of Boston Heights.
A warrant was issued for Gates Feb. 10 for first-degree felony rape.
A press release from the sheriff's office states deputies responded to a Northfield Center residence Nov. 11, 2016, in response to a report of a disoriented elderly female.
The caller stated an elderly female was knocking on the rear door of her residence. It was further reported that the female was barefoot and unable to communicate.
Officials said the rape did not occur in the township but in Boston Heights and the woman had walked to Northfield Center.
The 65-year-old female was identified and transported to the Cleveland Clinic for medical evaluation.
The female was unable to communicate with medical staff or with detectives from the Sheriff's Office.
The subsequent investigation revealed the female victim had been sexually assaulted.
As of press time Feb. 20, Gates had not been apprehended.
Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts should contact the Summit County Sheriff's Detective Bureau at 330-643-2131.
