Gallup police were searching for Hopper for raping a woman in a Gallup motel two weeks ago. The victim said Hopper was armed with a gun. 

According to the criminal complaint, Hopper had a contract with a hospital near Gallup but was terminated due to the current in-house investigations of unwanted sexual advances. 

The Apache County Sheriff's Office is also investigating another case with Hopper that involved sexual assault.
