GULLIVER – The Michigan State Police – St. Ignace Post continues to investigate the sexual assault of a Chicago woman Sunday. The assault allegedly took place near Lake Michigan in an area south of Gulliver in Mueller Township.

According to investigators, they have reason to believe the assailant traveled a significant distance to commit the assault.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, standing approximately 5 feet, 8 inches to 6 feet tall, and, while having a fair amount of facial stubble hair, the male does not have a full beard or mustache.

The suspect has light eyes, an average to athletic build and shorter, well-kept hair. He was wearing a grayish green t-shirt, jean shorts and tennis shoes at the time of the alleged assault. A MSP forensic artist has completed a sketch of the suspect, and investigators have released the sketch for possible identification by the public.

A bright yellow Jeep Wrangler was seen in the area at the time. It is described as having a spare tire featuring a yellow smiley face, on the back of the vehicle. Investigators are seeking information about this vehicle.

Anyone with information or investigative leads, are asked to call the MSP toll-free at (866) 411- 0018.
