Spokane police today released a sketch of a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman in a South Hill park Tuesday afternoon.

The 62-year-old woman was walking in Upper Lincoln Park at 2100 E. Southeast Blvd. between 4 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. when she noticed the man in the bluff area. He followed her to a wooded area and attacked her, then ran from the area.

The victim described the man as white, 25 to 30 years old, about 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds. He had jet black hair that was short and straight, with bangs that covered most of his forehead. His eyes were described as “very dark brown” and his skin olive toned.

He was clean shaven with “a very smooth complexion,” police said. He was last seen wearing pants and a black zipped hooded sweatshirt, but the hood was down.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233. Detective Paul Lebsock is investigating.
