The Carlton County Sheriff's Office is seeking assistance from the public to identify a vehicle and the vehicle's owner relating to a sexual and physical assault that occurred February 3 between 10:05 and 11:05 p.m.

This truck is similar to what is believed to be the style and look of the suspect's vehicle in a recent assault. The photo is not of the specific suspect vehicle, but rather a photo of what the suspect vehicle may look like according to the victim.

At that time, an adult female was traveling northbound on Interstate 35 near Esko when she stopped to assist a motorist who was pulled over on the shoulder of the northbound lane. While assisting the unknown male, he proceeded to both physically and sexually assault the female victim.

The suspect is described as a white male, late 20s to early 30s, medium build, with a shorter beard and short brown hair. He was wearing a black Carhartt hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and black work boots.

The adult female victim has not been hospitalized.

The vehicle was described as an approximately 2003 Ford F-150 extended cab with black matte paint and larger black matte color wheels along with low profile tires.

If you were traveling on I-35 in the Esko area between 10 and 11 p.m. February 3 and witnessed any vehicles parked on the shoulder of the interstate or have any information relating to this matter, contact Carlton County Dispatch at (218) 384-9520.
