Rape Investigation




Forty Fort Police request your assistance in the violent assault of a West Pettebone Street resident on January 14, 2013 at approximately 8:15 AM.

The attacker knocked on the door of a home posing as a gas company employee.

The male attacker told the victim that a neighbor had reported a gas leak at the home and when the woman cracked open the door the man forced his way into her residence. The man then sexually assaulted the woman inside the home.

We have reason to believe that the man specifically targeted the victim and this does not appear to have been a random attack.
The rapist is described as a man with very short hair, almost bald, who stood about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall. He weighed between 185 and 200 pounds and was wearing a red hat baseball type hat with no emblems or lettering on the front, a red long-sleeved shirt which resembled a long underwear type shirt and black pants.

Anyone with information on the assault is asked to call Forty Fort police at 570-287-8586
