Attleboro police are searching for a white male in his early 20's, approximately 5'8" to 6' tall, with short-cut "blondish" hair in connection with an armed sexual assault case that happened last Tues, Nov 20th. He is reportedly clean shaven, albeit with some "shadow" on his upper lip. He may also be a war veteran.

The victim, an unnamed woman, was taken at knife point by the suspect and forced to drive to the parking lot of a business located on Starkey Ave. She was then sexually assaulted by her captor, but was able to flee and obtain assistance from a concerned citizen. Once the police responded, an intensive search of the area was conducted for the suspect, but to no avail. However detectives were able to prepare a composite photo, which is shown above.

He revealed to the victim that he had served a tour of duty in Afghanistan, and added that he had lost some relatives in Afghanistan and has an estranged family in the Attleboro area.

Anyone who may have been witness to, or has any other information about the incident in question is urged to call the Attleboro detective division at 508-222-1212.
