MOULTRIE, Ga. (WTXL) — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect in two unsolved rape investigations that occurred eight years apart in Moultrie.
Authorities believe that the two assaults were committed by the same suspect.
According to investigators, on June 24, 2003, the GBI was requested by the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office to investigate a sexual assault.
They say a woman was walking in the area of Woodmen Road and Sylvester Drive in Colquitt County.
While walking, the victim was approached by an unknown male suspect, driving a small, maroon colored, two-door car.
Investigators say the suspect threatened the victim, drove her to an unknown location and assaulted her.
Then eight years later on August 27, 2011, the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office investigated another incident involving a second female victim walking along Veterans Parkway in Colquitt County.
GBI says the victim was approached by an unknown male suspect, driving a maroon extended cab or four-door pick-up truck.
The victim described the suspect as a black male, medium brown complexion, mid-40s, and medium build.
Other characteristics included a low, salt and pepper afro, glasses, and acne around his chin.
The second victim, along with a GBI Forensic Artist, was able to create a composite of the unknown suspect.
At this time, these cases are active and ongoing.
Anyone with information is urged to call the GBI Thomasville Office at (229) 225-4090 or the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office at (229) 616-7430.
