The Tucson Police Department is asking for the public's help to identify a man, suspected of sexually assaulting a woman early Friday morning.

Around 2:00 a.m., a woman in her late teens was approached by an unknown male while walking in a parking lot on the 900 Block of E. Speedway Blvd. when a man grabbed the victim and threatened to harm her with a knife if she didn't follow his directions, according to police. He forced her to walk with him on Speedway Blvd. and on Euclid, where police say he sexually assaulted her multiple times.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic or Native American man in his 30's, 5'5", with a thin build, bony face, and with black hair and brown eyes -- last seen wearing a white tank top, black jacket and blue jeans.

A restaurant was able to capture what the suspect looked like from it's video surveillance of the parking lot where the victim was approached.

Anyone with information about the incident and the suspect is asked to call 88-CRIME.
