Boise police release sketch of suspect in sexual assault near Americana Boulevard

Boise Police released a composite sketch Tuesday of a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman last month in an area just south of the Boise River and east of South Americana Boulevard.

The attack reportedly happened the evening of Aug. 20 as the woman sat outside her vehicle in the gravel area opposite West Americana Terrace, police said in a Tuesday news release. The woman told police a man approached her from behind and forced her to the ground, where he had sexual contact with her against her will, police said. The attacker then fled south on foot, police said.

The attacker is described as a white man in his 40s, about 6 feet, 1 inch tall and 260 pounds with a large build. He was missing several teeth and had black hair and an unshaven face, police said. At the time of the attack he wore a light blue windbreaker jacket, a white T-shirt with red lettering and tan pants with bleach stains on them, police said.

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS(2677) or leave a tip online at 343COPS.com. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could earn a reward of up to $1,000 for the apprehension of a felony suspect.
