JONESBORO, AR - Craighead and Greene County authorities continue investigating a brutal sexual assault that occured last week in a rural area where the two counties border each other.

Authorities thought they might have a possible lead on a suspect, but when they showed a photograph of the man to the victim, she said it was not her attacker.

Craighead County Sheriff Jack McCann says his office is considering turning to an artist's rendering of the suspect based on the victim's description.  The attacker is believed to be a Hispanic male in his early 30s, with dark hair and a slim build.
