Garner Police Investigate Sexual Assault
The Garner Police Department is investigating a reported sexual assault that occurred on Nov. 7, 2019, at 905 7th Ave., Building 18, at the Westchester Apartments. The 27-year-old victim reported that she returned home to her first-floor apartment at around 10:30 p.m. Upon entering the apartment, she was confronted by an unknown male who then sexually assaulted her. The victim was injured in the incident and received medical treatment for those injuries.
Investigators have been canvassing the apartment complex this morning (Nov. 8) to see if anyone saw anything that could help identify a suspect in this case. Garner Police are asking if anyone saw anything suspicious between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m. to contact the Garner Police Department. At this point, the only suspect description is that it was a white male, approximately 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Garner Police Department at 919.772.8810 or e-mail at GPDtips@garnernc.gov.
