EL PASO COUNTY – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the man they say held a woman at gunpoint and sexually assaulted her.
The Sheriff’s Office says this happened on Dec. 5 at the Falcon Walmart, 11550 Meridian Market View. It was just before 2 p.m. when deputies say the man walked toward the female victim, who was unloading her groceries. After she returned her cart, the man told her to get into the car and drive.
The suspect directed her to a remote location where deputies say he sexually assaulted her. He then told the woman to drive back to Walmart and park in the back of the store before he returned to his vehicle.
The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic man in his 20’s, 5’8″ with a medium build. He is also said to have around ‘boyish,’ clean shaven face. The man was last seen in dark clothing with a brown belt with keys hanging from it. The suspect was seen in an older model, dark SUV.
The Sheriff’s Office says it is possible that the man tried to make contact with another woman before this encounter.
If you are able to identify this man, or had a similar experience, you are asked to give the Sheriff’s Office a call at 719-520-7229 or sen Det. Nickolas Brklich an email at NickolasBrklich@elpasoco.com.
