TULSA -- The Tulsa Police Department is asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect and vehicle involved in a sexual assault.

On April 10, police say a 42-year-old woman was walking near the 2500 block of East 11th Street when a man approached her and attempted to engage in a conversation. Police say the woman walked away.

The suspect ran after the 42-year-old, grabbed her by the hair and dragged her to a nearby parking lot where he forced her to perform a sex act.

The victim was then dragged by the hair again to a side of the building where she was forced to perform another sex act.

According to a report, the victim was forced into the suspect’s car and driven to another location where she was sexually assaulted for a third time.

Police describe the suspect as a heavy-set white male with a full beard and mustache. He is approximately 6 foot, 3 inches tall and weighs 280 pounds.

The suspect’s vehicle is described as a 2000-2003 Lincoln Town Car that’s possibly silver. The vehicle may have a sticker on the rear passenger side window.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or the Tulsa Police Sex Crimes Unit at 918-596-9168.
