CHANDLER – Chandler police say a scar-faced man raped a woman for the second time in about four years.

Chandler police spokesman David Ramer says the woman does not know the man, but he's confronted her twice besides the rapes.

The woman was raped Monday night.

She says it was the same man who raped her in October 2005 at a Gilbert apartment complex.

She later moved to Chandler.

Police describe the man as Hispanic, in his mid-20s with a 3-inch scar on his right cheek, medium brown skin and very short hair with long thin sideburns. He's about 6 feet tall.

Ramer says he might be named Tony.

He says in the Gilbert attack, the woman heard someone call "Tony" and the man immediately left.
