Police still looking for assault suspect

A few tips and leads are being followed up on by the Michigan State Police St. Ignace Post as the investigation of a sexual assault continues.

A Chicago woman was attacked in the early morning hours on Sunday, July 22 in an area south of Gulliver along Lake Michigan in Mueller Township of Schoolcraft County.

A state police forensic artist created a sketch of the suspect in this crime.  Investigators are releasing the sketch in hopes that someone can identify the suspect.

Investigators have reason to believe the assailant traveled a significant distance to commit the assault.  The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, approximately 5’8” to 6’ tall, with a fair amount of facial stubble hair, but not a full beard nor mustache. The man has light eyes, an average to athletic build and shorter well-kept hair.  He was wearing a grayish green t-shirt, jean shorts and tennis shoes.

A bright yellow Jeep Wrangler was seen in the area.  It has a spare tire on the back with a yellow smiley face on it.  Investigators are seeking information about this vehicle.  A photo of a similar vehicle is provided for reference.

Anyone with information or investigative leads is asked to call the MSP toll-free at 1-866-411-0018.
