Public Assistance Needed to Identify
Suspect in Assault

The Kentucky State Police Frankfort Post request the public's help in identifying an individual involved in events that occurred on westbound Interstate 64 near the 48 mile marker. Around midnight, Friday, August 02, 2002, an unidentified male displayed a blue light on his dash and caused a female driver to pull over. The suspect approached the female's vehicle and requested her operator's license and registration. The male was not in a uniform and did not identify himself as a member of any specific law enforcement agency. The suspect requested that the female exit the vehicle, which she did. Upon exiting the vehicle, the suspect attempted to assault the female. The victim was able to defend herself and escape on foot.

The suspect is described as a white male, late 30's or early 40's, with short dark hair. The male subject is believed to be about 5 feet,  5 inches tall weighing approximately 160-170 pounds. The suspect had a thick mustache and long fingernails and spoke with what appeared to be a high pitched voice. The suspect was last seen wearing blue jean shorts with fringe and a white t-shirt that appeared to be too small for the suspect. The suspect is believed to be operating a light brown late 80's model hatchback with square headlights, no grill and no passenger side mirror.

Anyone who may have information regarding the incident, or the possible identification of the suspect are encouraged to contact the Kentucky State Police at 1-800-222-5555 (in the state of Kentucky only, does not work out of state).

The investigation into the incident is continuing by Det. Greg Wolfe, Frankfort Post.
