SPRINGDALE, SC (WIS) -

An anonymous business has chipped in $2,000 to Crimestoppers in hopes of helping the organization find the man who sexually assaulted a woman while he was impersonating a police officer.

Crimestoppers will give the money to anyone who can provide a tip that leads to an arrest in this case.

The incident happened back on Oct. 22, 2013 around 8:30 p.m.

Springdale Police say a man using a small blue light on his dashboard stopped a woman in the 1000 block of Wattling Road.

Chief Kevin Cornett said the suspect then approached the vehicle and informed the victim that her tag lamp was out. 

The suspect used the traffic stop as a ruse to get the victim out of the vehicle and that is when he began to hit her repeatedly in the head, Cornett said. The suspect then dragged the victim into the edge of the wood line where, according to the release, he sexually assaulted her and then drove off toward Augusta Road.

The suspect is described as a white man in his early twenties to mid-thirties, with light brown or red hair, light colored eyes and no facial hair. The suspect was wearing a black T-shirt with the word "POLICE" written on the front, a black windbreaker-style jacket, khaki pants, black police style boots and a box style holster similar to a radio holster or possible a large cell phone holster.

The suspect's vehicle is described as a small newer model dark-colored 4-door compact car.

If you have any information in this case, you are asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
