Police looking for suspect who drove car with woman partially trapped inside

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Authorities are looking for a suspect who made illegal sexual contact with a woman before trying to flee the scene of the crime with the victim partially trapped inside his vehicle.

The incident happened Friday evening in the area of South Murray Boulevard and Dewey Drive. A woman was approached by an unidentified male who began to make sexual comments. When she declined his advances and tried to walk away, he made illegal sexual contact with her.

The woman confronted and chased the suspect, who was able to enter the driver’s seat of his car before she confronted him at the passenger window. With the woman still partially trapped by her hair, the suspect drove two blocks before the victim was able to break free from the vehicle.

UPDATE: The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his mid to late 20s. He has a medium build, short black hair, and “extremely chapped lips,” according to police. He was driving a light blue four-door newer-model sedan with an Oklahoma license plate.

Anyone with information on the suspect or the vehicle is asked to call police at 719-444-7000, or Crime Stoppers at 719-634-STOP (7867).
