LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — Police are searching for a man they say robbed and sexually assaulted a woman in Hyattsville early Sunday morning.

Police responded just after 2 a.m. Sunday to the 3500 block of East West Highway for the report of an armed robbery and sexual assault.

Investigators say the woman was walking home from the Prince George’s Plaza Metro Station when she was approached from behind by a man. The man held a knife towards her and instructed her to go behind a dumpster.

The man demanded her property and then sexually assaulted the woman. Police say he fled back towards the metro station.

The man is described as a dark-skinned black male, 20 to 30 years old, shoulder-length dreads, possibly balding on top, with an orange and black “snap-back” hat, an orange shirt and blue jeans.

The investigation is ongoing.
