The Wood County Sheriff’s Department is searching for a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman Nov. 19 along a rural road south of the Village of Pemberville.
The victim told investigators she was assaulted after stopping to help the suspect who appeared to have pulled over to the side of the road because of mechanical problems.
She said the suspect’s vehicle, a black Chevy or GMC extended 4 by 4 pickup truck with a silver-colored tool box in the bed, was stopped with its hazard lights flashing. The man pushed her into the truck and assaulted her, the woman told police.
The suspect is described as being in his late 20s or early 30s, 6-2 to 6-3, and 230 to 250 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. He has pock marks on his right cheek.
Anyone with information about the incident should contact Det. Sgt. Terry James at (419) 373-6529.
