A Helper woman said she was raped by a man who knocked on her door and posed as a construction worker needing information.

The woman said he asked her a construction-related question before pulling a knife on her and raping her, police wrote.

She described the man as Latino, between 30 and 40 years old, and of "chunky" build at a height of 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7.

"Please be aware that we do have several construction projects and workers in the Helper area who are doing legitimate work," police wrote. "However, if you see anything suspicious or out of place, please contact us immediately."

Anyone with information or who has experienced a similar attack may call Helper police at 435-472-3719.
