Hearing-/Speech-Impaired Woman Sexually Assaulted Near Metrorail

A hearing- and speech-impaired woman was sexually assaulted near a Metrorail station. Police say the attack happened around 2 a.m. in a parking garage stairwell at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza Metrorail station at 6205 NW 27th Ave.

Police used sign language to communicate with the woman, in her 20s, to obtain information for a sketch. However, the man might have been caught on surveillance video. 

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. [
