The Moscow Police Department wants to be as proactive as possible in this case. Instead of waiting for evidence to back from the lab they had the victim meet with a forensic sketch artist to create the image .
The suspect is described as a white male about 5' 7" and 240 pounds.
The incident happened on July 3rd at an apartment in the Lauder Avenue area near the University of Idaho campus.
The college age woman told officers she was unlocking her door in the common hallway when the man allegedly forced her into the apartment and raped her
"Officers will also be out with the sketch here in the next day canvasing the area that this took place in to see if anybody else saw the individual that is our suspect in this," said Moscow Police Chief James Fry.
Since posting the sketch officers have already received a few tips.
The sketch is available on the KLEW website and the City of Moscow Facebook page.
Anyone with any information about this man should contact the Moscow Police Department at 208-882-2677 and ask to speak with detective Dani Vargas.
