Woman sexually assaulted in broad daylight outside Memphis motel

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis police are searching for a man who attacked a woman outside a motel in broad daylight.

It happened Thursday afternoon around 4 near the intersection of Lamar Avenue and American Way.

Police originally said the attack happened at a gas station in the area, but later clarified that the attack happened across the street from the gas station at the EconoLodge.

The woman told police she tried to ignore a man who walked up and tried to talk to her. The stranger then pulled a gun and forced her to the side of the building.

That is where she said he sexually assaulted her.

Memphis police are still investigating the case.
