A woman reported that a man forced her into a vehicle Monday night near Stadium and Erie, near 21st and Hillside, and sexually assaulted her before she escaped, police said Tuesday.
Wichita police Capt. Brent Allred said it was reported this way: A 19-year-old woman had been at one relative’s house and was walking on Erie to another relative’s home when a newer, black, four-door Jeep stopped. The driver asked about a house for rent on the block. He got out of the vehicle and forced her into it. The attack began around 6:45 p.m. Monday and lasted at least several minutes. She managed to escape the vehicle by opening a door.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic man, about 28, 5 feet 5 inches tall with a medium build, black hair and brown eyes and having a strong accent. He wore a white V-neck shirt and blue jeans and had spiked hair.
