Police are looking for a man they say sexually assaulted at gunpoint in her car in Southwest Miami-Dade early Wednesday morning.

The incident happened shortly after midnight at Southwest 117th Court at 121st St. Police say the 29-year-old woman had stopped at a nearby Chevron gas station to make a purchase and when she got back in the car, the suspect was waiting in the back seat.

Police say the man pointed the gun at her head and told her to drive to a nearby warehouse area where he sexually assaulted her.

The woman was somehow able to call the police and the suspect fled on foot. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital.

The suspect is described as a Latin male in his 30's, who was wearing a red shirt and tan pants at the time of the attack. He also has tattoos on both arms.

Anyone with information on the attack is asked to call Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
