ORIGINAL STORY

On April 16, Las Vegas officers investigated a report of sexual assault at a business on the 4100 Block of South Sandhill Road, near Flamingo.

Detectives learned that a woman was alone when a man came into the business. Police said the man asked her if she was the only one in the store before grabbing her and committing the sexual assault.

The man proceeded to leave the business in a white sedan.

Detectives describe the man as a white or Asian adult in his early 20s, approximately 5 feet 8 inches, and with a slim build. The man had brown hair, was clean shaven, and was described as having acne. 

He was last seen wearing glasses, blue jeans, and a black T-shirt with the letters SWS in large letters inside of a red circle on the front of the shirt.
