Baltimore County police today sought the public's help in identifying a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a woman last week in the White Marsh area.

According to police, a 27-year-old woman was walking along Fontana Lane the afternoon of Jan. 26 when she was grabbed from behind. The woman told investigators the man threatened her with a handgun, told her to close her eyes and forced her into a car, where he sexually assaulted her.

Afterward, the man told the woman to get out of the car and threatened to kill her if she told anyone, police said.

Authorities described the suspect as black, about 32 years old, 6 feet tall and weighing 220 pounds, with brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black, winter coat and a ski mask.

The victim told police the car in which she was assaulted was a grayish-blue color with a cartoon character on the dashboard.
