Atlanta police are looking for a man who raped and brutally beat a woman on February 23, and with a newly-created sketch, they’re asking the public for assistance before he strikes again.
WSB-TV reports that the suspect attacked an unsuspecting female at around 9 p.m., off of Washington Avenue, where he dragged her into the abandoned Washington Circle housing projects. The victim, 30, told authorities that she was lost while standing at the East Point MARTA station. The suspect lured her by saying he knew a shortcut to her destination. After the attack, she escaped and ran to a nearby trailer park.

Police recently released a sketch of the suspect, in hopes that someone will recognize him and come forward. Anyone with any information is urged to call police immediately.
