D.C. police released a sketch Saturday of a man suspected of sexually assaulting a Georgetown University student in April.

Police said that at about 2 a.m. April 16, a man with a handgun approached a 19-year-old student as she walked alone on the 3300 block of Prospect Street NW. He fondled and sexually assaulted the woman at gunpoint before fleeing.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Detective Carmichael at 202-727-3700, the Command Information Center at 202-727-9099 or 888-919-CRIME (888-919-2746).

Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to D.C. Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS and to the department’s tip line by text messaging 50411. If the information provided leads to an arrest and indictment, the caller could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

Those 18-20 are also adults. It's unfortunate that young women who are in university are more likely to be raped than women, girls, and young women who are not in university. It's good that the sketch of the person who assualted the young woman has been released but the sketch won't contribute too much to finding the suspect.

Women always have to keep the antenna up.

Maybe he'll talk about it & someone will turn him in. Don't worry about putting another black man behind bars.
