Sexual assault suspect may be stained pink

Lakewood Police are looking for a sexual assault suspect who may be stained pink.

A woman said she was walking near West 6th Avenue and Arbutus Street Sunday afternoon when a man dragged her down a small hill to a grassy area.

During the attack, the woman sprayed the man with pink-colored mace that can leave a stain. He may have also scratched his face.

Police didn't specify, but some brands of colored mace use a UV marking dye that is only visible under a black light. 

The suspect is described as a white man in his late 20s or early 30s. He is about 6'1" with a stocky build. He has short, possibly blond hair. 

Anyone who believes that they may have information about this case is asked to call the Lakewood Police Department at 303-987-7111.
