Cobb County police are hunting a black man who kidnapped, raped and robbed a woman just after she left a CVS drug store in Austell early Tuesday morning.
Police say the 24-year-old woman was leaving the CVS on 800 East-West Connector in Austell when she was approached by a man with a handgun around 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 25. Austell is a suburb northwest of Atlanta.
The man ordered the woman to drive him to an unknown location where he raped her. Afterwards, he forced the woman to drive him to several ATM locations where he withdrew money from her account.
After robbing the woman, the man fled on foot. The attacker is described as a light skinned black male with short dreadlocks. He stands about 6 feet tall and weighs about 180 pounds.
“This is a very dangerous individual, and Cobb County police are very concerned,” said spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce. “We need the public’s help in identifying him so we can safely take him into custody.”
Police asks that anyone with information call (770) 499-3945.
