The incident occurred Saturday after midnight near 137th Avenue and 155th Street, where the suspect allegedly tricked a 16-year-old girl into believing he was a police officer and told her to get into his vehicle, police said. The man then drove the victim to a parking lot near 102nd Avenue and 185th Street, where he pulled out a knife and raped her, according to police.
The suspect then threw the girl out of his vehicle and fled the scene, police said. The victim called 911 and was taken to Mary Immaculate Hospital where she was treated.
The suspect was described as a black male in his 30s, approximately 5 feet 7 inches tall and roughly 140 pounds. He was driving a late-model black pickup truck, according to police.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-800-577 TIPS (8477). All calls will be kept confidential.
