HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hattiesburg and Lamar County authorities are looking for a rapist who sexually assaulted a 22-year-old Gulf Coast woman who was visiting friends in Hattiesburg.
Sheriff Danny Rigel said the woman was attacked around 2 a.m. as she was getting out of her car at an apartment complex in the 2700 block of Oak Grove Road.
She was pushed back into her car, driven about a mile away to a wooded area and assaulted.
Her car was found abandoned a short distance from the scene.
Authorities are looking for a black male in his mid to late 20s, 5 foot 8 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds with a shaved head and light to medium complexion.
Since the apartment complex is located in Hattiesburg, the suspect also faces kidnapping and auto theft charges in the Hub City.
