Police said the man confronted the girl about 5:30 p.m. May 7 in the 3100 block of Potter Street. Police said he then forced her into a four-door Honda and sexually assaulted her before she escaped near Fourth Street and Allegheny Avenue.

Her attacker was a black man in his 20s with a medium complexion, about 6 feet, 5 inches tall, with a medium build. His vehicle was a black Honda with tinted windows and a Connecticut license plate.

Anyone with information on the attacker's whereabouts is asked to call the Special Victims Unit at 215-685-3251 or 215-685-3252. - Inquirer staff
