Woman Raped on the Side of the Road After Her Car Has Trouble

A 21-year-old woman had to pull off I-95 Sunday morning around 6:30 because her car was having trouble. She stopped in the area of NW 103rd Street near NW Sixth Avenue, where a young man approached her, hit her in the back of the head, and sexually assaulted her.

Police say as the woman was inspecting the front of her car, the suspect came up behind her and hit her in the back of the head. He then pushed her to the ground and punched her several times in the face. He then sexually assaulted her before fleeing.

According to NBC Miami, he's described as "a white male in his early 20s, about 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-9 with a thin build and dark curly hair."

He had one silver hoop earring and was driving an older black Honda with tinted windows.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
