The St. George Police Department released a composite sketch of a rape suspect who attacked a woman along a bike path in May.

A 25-year-old woman told police that on May 2 she was jogging south on the bike path in St. George near Sunset Boulevard. She told police she was knocked to the ground and raped. The woman was able to break free from the man and was able to contact a family member, who took her to Dixie Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Police have yet to find the suspect. He is described as Caucasian, 20-30 years of age, approximately 5-foot-8 with a medium build. He has brown or hazel eyes, and was wearing a black bandanna on his head, a black short-sleeve shirt and black pants.

Police ask anyone with information about the suspect to contact the Investigations Unit at 435-627-4330.
