Police are hoping a lost shoe will help lead them to a suspect who allegedly tried to rape a woman in Briarwood last week.
The suspect approached the 26-year-old victim on Daniels Street near Hoover Avenue at about 8 p.m. on Sept. 24, threw her to the ground and said that he was going to rape her, according to authorities. The woman then fought back and the suspect fled.
Police have released a sketch of the suspect and a photo of the sneaker he left behind at the site of the attempted rape. He is described as Asian, 5 feet 5 inches tall and 140 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or can text their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
