A Tulsa woman is sleeping better, knowing the man she accused of rape is behind bars. However, a second woman hopes you can help Tulsa Police find her attacker.

Britni was attacked in her east Tulsa apartment on August 6th. A man she saw in her complex knocked on her door and asked for help. When she opened the door, he forced his way inside with a butcher knife.

She says he threatened to hurt her children if she didn't comply. "He kept telling me, I don't know why I'm doing this. Something is wrong with me in my head, just talk to me. I didn't know what to say, so I said, I just want to go lay down with my kids. He said, it's too late for that, you're already bleeding. I said I'll just put a band aid on it, I won't do anything, just go."

Tulsa Police say the man who attacked Britni, Manuel Ahaisse turned himself in after seeing his picture on TV.

They are still looking for Christian Xala-Bravo [pictured bottom right]. Tulsa Police say he forced open a window and raped a woman in south Tulsa less than a week ago.

He dropped his wallet in the victim's apartment.

Anyone with information about either man can call Crimestoppers at 596-COPS.
