Athens, GA–Police still don’t know the identity of the man responsible for the aggravated assault and attempted rape that happened at the Botanical Gardens this past Friday. The police are working very hard to figure out who did this. The UGA Police Department has contacted a sketch artist from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation in response to the incident.
Last Friday at the Botanical Garden complex, an unknown man with a knife approached a woman, and then tried to take her to another location to rape her. Police say that after the woman talked to the man, and calmed tensions, he left the scene–then she called police.
Authorities responded on foot with dogs, but they believe the man left the site before they had a full perimeter set up. They hope the sketch will help the investigation move forward.
UGA Police Chief Jimmy Williamson says, “once we get that, we’ll make it available to all media outlets, and we’ll start doing some canvasing of areas, and trying to see if anybody recognizes that person.”
The sketch artist will meet with the investigators and victim on Thursday to make the composite of the man.
