Police say a woman was sexually assaulted by a man with a knife last weekend, and they are asking the public's help in finding a suspect the woman described.
Police said the man has a medium-brown complexion, stands between 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-6, has an athletic build and close-dropped hair and appeared to be in his mid-20s.
The woman was attacked at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday in an alley between Ninth and Iredell streets, a block from Duke University’s East Campus.
The woman, whose age was not disclosed, was pushed to the ground before the attack and was treated later for minor injuries.
Never miss a local story.
Police asked that anyone who has information that might help them find the suspect call investigators at 919-560-4440, Ext. 29349, or CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200.
CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers do not have to identify themselves.
