Police have released a computer sketch in hopes of identifying a man accused of the rape of a 56-year-old woman in Central City late last month.

The victim told police she was held down and sexually assaulted by an acquaintance she knew only as “Joe” in a home in the 2900 block of Dryades around 9:15 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24, the initial police report stated. On Wednesday, police issued a description of the suspect as a stocky 5-foot-5, 130-pound black man in his mid-30s with a missing top front tooth wearing a blue-and-white jersey with blue pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call special-victims Detective Damita Williams at 658-5523 or to CrimeStoppers at 822-1111 to leave an anonymous tip that could be eligible for a cash reward.
