Police Release Sketch of Sexual Assault Suspect


Published:

Montgomery County Police today released a sketch of the suspect in an alleged sexual assault on Oct. 21 on the Capital Crescent Trail. Police described the suspect as a thin, approximately 6-foot tall white male with a pale complexion and short brown hair. Police say a white man riding a bicycle was observed in the area at the time of the assault, which occurred around 7 p.m. on the section of the Trail between Massachusetts Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard. Police did not say the man is a suspect in the case, instead that he may have information that can assist investigators. They also released an image of a bicycle similar to the one the man was riding, which can be seen in the MCPD press release. A 21-year-old woman said she was jogging on the Trail when she was knocked unconscious from behind and dragged off the path into nearby woods. She regained consciousness and called for help, when another jogger helped her to a house in the 4900 block of Brookeway Drive, according to the police account. Detectives are asking anyone who might know the suspect or the bicycle rider to contact them at 301-279-8000. Police are offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest or indictment of the person responsible. Tips can be provided anonymously by texting "MCPD" and the tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Image via MCPD
