A forensic artist has worked with a woman who was raped on June 22 to come up with a composite sketch of her attacker.
“We are hopeful this drawing will help us track the guy down,” said Hood River Police Detective Stan Baker.
The suspect being sought by law enforcement officials is described as a Caucasian male who stands about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a stocky build. He is balding with mostly gray hair and is possibly unshaven with a mustache. The man could be wearing glasses with thick lenses.
Hood River Police Chief Bruce Ludwig said the man is most likely a county resident. He offered the victim a ride home from a pub along West Cascade Avenue and was driving a small blue older model car.
According to reports, instead of chauffeuring the victim home, the suspect took an alternate route and then pulled over and attacked her.
“We want women in the community to exercise caution right now — especially when they are outside at night,” said Ludwig.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the non-emergency dispatch line at 386-2711 or Baker directly at 387-5251.
