THE WOODLANDS, Texas - Authorities released a sketch Tuesday of a man accused of raping a teen as she was walking on a jogging trail earlier this year.

The girl told investigators that on the night of March 21 she was leaving a school function when a man in his 20s grabbed her, pulled her into some bushes and sexually assaulted her.

The incident happened near the intersection of Research Forest Drive and Capstone, investigators said.

Investigators said the girl met with a sketch artist and they developed a drawing of the man believed to be responsible for the assault.

The man was described as white, in his late 20s, between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 11 inches tall, with a medium build, dark-colored hair, thicker eyebrows and a strong odor of cigarettes on his breath. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans.

Anyone with information about the case was asked to call Detective Adam Acosta at 281-364-4211 or 936-538-3414.
