The sexual assault happened early Sunday morning near the 200 block of East Birch Avenue, according to Flagstaff Police.

The victim and a witness were seated in their parked car, when the suspect approached them on foot. He lured one of the women to a secluded area, where he sexually assaulted her, according to police.

He is described as a white male, 5 feet 10 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall with a muscular build, possibly wearing blue jeans, glasses and a baseball cap with the word "POLICE" on it.

A witness also described him as having a black strap or stripe across his shirt. The suspect was also reported to be carrying a large flashlight.
