JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police are searching for a man who reportedly climbed into a woman’s car, put a gun to her head and demanded she have sex with him.

The 51-year-old victim said the incident happened around 11 p.m. Monday at Walgreens, 108 E. Highland.

She told Officer Jonathan Redman when she got in her car to leave the store, a black male was sitting in the backseat.

The woman claimed the man climbed into the front seat and told her to drive.

As she was driving, the victim claimed the man put a “gun to her head and demanded sexual favors,” the incident report stated.

According to the report, the suspect threatened the woman several times saying, “I’m gonna shoot you in the head.”

The victim told Redman she “feared for her life,” but refused the suspect’s demands and continued to drive.

“After a short while, [the victim] was able to stop her vehicle and the suspect got out and ran away,” the report stated.

The victim told police she remembered seeing the suspect in the store.

She described the suspect as a 5’6” black male, wearing a brown hoodie and a blue knit cap, carrying a small semi-automatic pistol, possibly silver.

According to the report, the suspect told the woman he was “in school and did not need to go to jail.”
