The Randall County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man authorities consider dangerous and a possibly endangered woman.

Octavio Marrufo, 39, is wanted for assault of a family member with a previous conviction.

The sheriff's office said Marrufo has a history of violence and should be considered dangerous. He has also been involved in a standoff with police.

Deputies are also searching for Katrina Risley, 38, who they believe to be with Marrufo or in danger. They said Marrufo has assaulted Risley in the past and no one has heard from her in several days. She is also not answering her cellphone. 

The pair may be traveling in a yellow Monte Carlo, a primer grey Nissan Xterra or a silver Dodge Challenger.

If you have any information about these two people, call the Randall County Sheriff's Office at 806-468-5751 or 911.
