BREAKING NEWS: Have you seen him?


The Mesa Police Department released a composite sketch Thursday in hopes of identifying a man they say raped a woman earlier this month.

On Oct. 3, a man approached a woman in front of her home near Adobe and Lindsay roads, grabbed her arm and forced her inside the house, police said. The man took the woman into the bedroom and sexually assaulted her, police said.  He then left in an unknown direction.

Police described the man as between 45 and 55 years old, between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 6 inches tall, and weighing about 200 pounds. He has salt and pepper hair and a mustache, police said, and may have been driving a gray or silver four-door sedan.

No other information about the crime was immediately available.

Mesa police ask anyone with information to call its non-emergency number at 480-644-2211 and select option 2, or text 274-637 and begin the message with “MESAPD”.
