Connecticut State Police released an artist sketch on Monday of the suspect who authorities said posed as a Naugatuck police officer and
The man allegedly drove a Ford Crown Victoria with red and blue flashing lights on the dashboard when he pulled the woman over in her green Jeep on Wednesday. The incident occurred around the area of Gorman and Lewis streets, and after ordering the woman out of her car the man sexually assaulted her, according to state police.
While the call initially came in that the suspect was a Naugatuck officer, the investigation has since ruled that claim out, state police said. No Naugatuck officer matched the description given by the victim, police said.
Lt. J. Paul Vance, state police spokesman, said police have developed some leads since the news broke on Friday. He said the public has been “extremely helpful” and for anyone who has information to contact the state police at 203-393-4200 or 1-800-842-0200.
When asked why information on the assault was released Friday, when the incident occurred Wednesday, Vance said the complainant delayed reporting it. But as soon as police received word on the incident more information was released, Vance said.
The suspect was described as a white male, approximately 6 to 6 feet 2 inches tall, of average build, with blond, curly hair swept to the side, a big, bulbous nose and not overly tan but not pale. He was approximately in his late 20's early 30's, clean-shaven with hairy blond arms.
The suspect was described as wearing dark navy blue pants, a navy blue polo shirt with a breast pocket on the left side. Above the pocket words were embroidered in an arch "Naugatuck" and straight across below it was "police.” He had a white shirt underneath it. He was wearing a watch on his left arm. He had a utility belt with a flash light and a pouch on the left that appeared to be handcuffs. The suspect was wearing white Adidas sneakers and black frame sunglasses, with multi colored lenses.
