Authorities seek attacker



A woman was sexually assaulted in Richmond Gardens subdivision at noon Tuesday, and Richmond County sheriff's investigators are looking for her attacker.

But they're releasing few details about the incident.

Investigator Richard Roundtree said the victim is at Medical College of Georgia Hospital in critical condition but is expected to recover.

She was alone in her home on Circular Drive before the assault, he said. Although he would not say if she knew her attacker or how he gained entry, Investigator Roundtree did say it was not a home invasion.

He would not release her age or age range, nor would he say if the assailant used a weapon.

Police are looking for a Hispanic man, about 6 feet tall and 175 pounds. He was driving a newer model, teal-green Honda Civic with tinted windows, low-profile tires, a spoiler kit on the back and a paper tag.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call investigators at 821-1080.
