Deputies looking for man who kidnapped, sexually assaulted woman at Falcon Walmart

FALCON, Colo. - Deputies are looking for the man who kidnapped and sexually assaulted a woman at the Falcon Walmart Wednesday afternoon. 

Deputies said it happened around 1:45 p.m. at the Walmart on Meridian Market View. Deputies said the victim put her groceries in her car, and as she was returning her cart, the suspect opened the back passenger door and got inside. When she returned, he held her at gunpoint and told her to drive. 

The suspect directed her to a remote location, where he sexually assaulted her, according to deputies. He then forced her to drive back to the Walmart and park behind the store. That's when he got out and walked back to his car. 

Deputies said the man may have tried to get into another woman's car before this one. 

The suspect is described as a Hispanic or white man in his 20s. He's about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a medium build and a round, clean-shaven "boyish" face. He didn't have any visible tattoos or piercings. He was wearing dark clothing and a brown belt with keys hanging from it. He drove an older-model dark-colored SUV. 

Surveillance photos of the suspect and SUV are available above. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Brklich at 719-520-7229 or email NickolasBrklich@elpasoco.com .
