Another woman assaulted on Detroit's west side; police continue search

DETROIT (WJBK) -- Detroit Police say a man believed to have raped multiple women on Detroit's west side sexually assaulted another woman early Sunday morning.

It happened at about 4 a.m. Sunday morning near Ward Avenue and Grand River Avenue, just south of the I-96.

Police say the woman was entering her car when the suspect approached her.  He forced her into her vehicle and sexually assaulted her.

Detroit police say the light-complected black man in the sketch, described as 5-feet-10 inches to 6-feet tall is about 25 to 40 years old and weighs 275 pounds.

Investigators warn that he is on the run and extremely dangerous.  He is believed to be driving a new model white Ford Fusion or Taurus.

Another woman, Joy Porties, shared her story with FOX 2 Thursday. She said the same man carjacked, kidnapped and sexually assaulted her at gunpoint March 24. 

She has taken to the streets with other community members to search for the man she says attacked her.

Another man told FOX 2 - he believes his adult daughter and her two friends were kidnapped and raped by the same man.

In that incident, the suspect held a revolver, reportedly pretending to carry out a hit on the victims. This happened blocks away on Monica Street and only five days after Porties was taken.

Brandon Norris, a community activist says, "It really infuriates me, it definitely touched me emotionally just to think about an innocent woman. We should be here as a community to protect our women that are being sodomized and being raped." 

If you have any information about the man in the sketch, contact the Detroit Police Department.
