Sexual assault in Virginia-Highland

UPDATE: Police have released a sketch of the suspect in Sunday's sexual assault in Virginia -Highland

Virginia-Highland residents who were relaxing after police arrested suspects in connection with a murder there have reason to be nervous again.

A woman was sexually assaulted in a home on Rosedale Road Sunday night, Atlanta police said. Officers were called to the residence at 7:15 p.m.

The attacker was armed with a kitchen knife, according to Channel 2 Action News. He encountered the woman outside the home, forced her inside and assaulted her, the station reported, citing police sources.

Sunday night, police searched the neighborhood with a K-9 dog looking for the suspect.

Police say the suspect is a black man in his mid-40s who stands about 5-foot-8 and has little hair. He was "wearing a lot of dark clothes and had a very unpleasant odor," said Officer Kim Jones, a police spokeswoman.

Police declined to release any further information about the incident.

A neighbor told Channel 2 the suspect fled with a blanket, suggesting he might have been homeless.

Last week, Atlanta police arrested three men in connection with the November murder of Charles Boyer outside an apartment complex on Virginia Avenue. Investigators linked them to at least one home invasion in another Atlanta neighborhood and said they suspected they were linked to many other crimes.
