Coeur d'Alene Police searching for rape suspect

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho. - Coeur d'Alene Police are continuing the search for a man they believe raped a 26-year-old woman in the 1100 block of Harrison Ave just after 2 a.m. Friday morning. Detectives have been investigating numerous tips that have been called in.  

The victim told police that she had stepped outside of her home to smoke a cigarette. When she finished smoking and was about to go back inside, she says she was grabbed from behind by a male suspect. She says the man forcibly took her back into the home and sexually assaulted her. The man then fled the scene.

The woman says she did not know her assailant. She told police that her attacker was a white male, 27 to 32 years of age. He's described as 6'3" to 6'4", 190 pounds with a very white complexion, brown hair, which was short on the sides but thick on top, and blue eyes. She says he was wearing a light blue and white vertically-striped shirt, khaki colored shorts and white tennis shoes.

One of the tips that detectives received later in the day Friday came from an older woman who says that when got up from watching TV and went into her kitchen just before 1 a.m., she saw what she believed to be a man's legs climbing through her kitchen window. She yelled to her husband who was sleeping in the next room. He immediately came to her aide and the suspect fled.

At 12:42 a.m. the police department received the report of a prowler in the 700 block of N. 11th, an area that is very close to the location of the attempted burglary where the older woman say the man's legs. The female victim reported she saw a male peaking through her window. Officers responded and were unable to locate the male.

City and County Detectives are sharing information and tips in order to determine if the incidents are related.

Detectives say at this point there is no composite sketch of the suspect. They're asking that anyone who has information on the crime call the Coeur d'Alene Police Department at 208-769-2320.
