COMANCHE, Okla. — Several law enforcement agencies are investigating a violent sexual assault that occurred near Comanche Lake.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says the Comanche Police Department and Stephens County Sheriff's Office are searching for the suspect.

In a news release, OSBI investigators say the assault happened Saturday in a wooded area on the northwest side of the lake.

The victim suffered serious, non-life threatening injuries after being severely beaten and sexually assaulted, officials said.

Investigators have released a composite of the suspect, who was described as:

  • A male with pale skin
  • Covered in freckles
  • Unshaven or stubble
  • Teeth rotting and missing
  • Had a deep voice
  • Light red hair
  • Receding hairline/buzz cut
  • Thin build
  • Vertical scar on the left cheek just under the eye.

Investigators say the suspect will have a large, deep bite mark on his chest, which was left by the victim.

Officials say the suspect was described as wearing a dirty, white Murray State t-shirt with blue lettering.

And the suspect was possibly wearing Carhart lace-up boots, officials say.

The suspect was also described as having a "strong odor of oil field mud about his person," a news release said.
