S.L. POLICE SEEK MAN WHO RAPED AND ASSAULTED 19-YEAR-OLD WOMAN

Salt Lake police are looking for a man who assaulted and raped a 19-year-old woman Tuesday as she was walking home from work.

The North Redwood woman was walking near 350 S. Redwood Road about 1 a.m. when she saw a man lying in the grassy weeds off of the side of the road. As she passed him, he chased after her and knocked her down.Both of them rolled down the hill of the overpass and the man hit her in the face when she screamed, a police report states. The man then took a nylon rope he had tied around his pants, gagged the woman's mouth, held her down and raped her.

The suspect also took the victim's book bag and ran away.
