MPD releases sketch of man who threatened, raped young woman

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis police released a sketch of a man who pointed a gun at and raped a young woman.

Investigators said the man pulled up beside the woman as she walked near Carbon Road and Argo Avenue on Saturday, August 1.

He asked if she wanted a ride; when she said no, he pointed a gun at her and forced her into his car.

He then drove a mile down the road to Alonzo Weaver Park, which is across the street from Mitchell High School.

There he raped the woman and abandoned her in the park where she called police.

With the help of a graphic artist, MPD released a composite sketch of the man the woman described as her attacker.
