Sketch released – Drawing shows suspect in Emory rape
Do you know this man?
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation produced this sketch of a man that allegedly sexually assaulted an Emory student the night of Feb. 11 near the Emory Village.
Investigators urge anyone with information about this man to call Emory Police at 404-727-6111. He is described as a white male in his late 50s, 5 feet 10 inches tall, with a reddish or brown beard, wearing a brown or green beanie cap, a tan or brown jacket, dark blue jeans and brown boots. The suspect was last seen running toward Emory Village.
The university has stepped up police patrols since the incident happened.
“Emory is deeply concerned about the safety of our campus and our students, faculty, staff and visitors, and maintaining a safe community is always of the utmost importance to the university,” spokeswoman Beverly Clark said in an email. “While investigating the incident, Emory Police have increased their visibility around the Emory campus. The female student involved continues to be provided with the support, resources and ongoing care of Emory staff members.”
Police also released the report about the incident, but it provides little new information about the case.
The Emory University student reported that at 11:15 pm, a man raped her in the woods between Dowman Drive and Oxford Road near the Emory Village traffic circle. According to the report, the student was walking down Dowman Drive between the main gate of the university and the Dowman Drive information booth before the attack occurred.
Emory University had closed its doors on Feb. 11 due to inclement weather. A story that aired on WSB-TV said there was a security camera positioned near the scene of the attack. The police report does not say whether police have any footage of the suspect or the assault.
