On Thursday around 2:15 p.m. Police received a 911 call saying that an adult female had been assaulted by an unknown suspect.
The assault happened in the Harmony Mountain Raches subdivision.
The female victim was showing a male subject a building lot when she was suddenly attacked by the male. The suspect produced a weapon during the assault.
The victim was eventually able to break free and run to a home about a half mile away to obtain help.
The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-30s. He is 5’10”, about 160 pounds, with short brown hair, blue eyes, and a deep voice. He is muscular with a stocky build, wide shoulders and a square jaw. He was wearing blue jeans, a light great v-neck shirt with black stripes, a think windbreaker type jacket, and thin cotton/knit gloves.
He was last seen in a 2010 white Subaru Outback with California plates. The vehicle had front end damage with orange paint transfer. It also had black rocker panels below the doors, a black luggage rack and tinted rear windows.
The Iron County Sheriff Office is following up on several leads and working very hard to bring this suspect to justice.
