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.
