The Waldo County Sheriff’s Office is looking for information about a sexual assault that reportedly occurred in Stockton Springs Monday, May 7, at about 3:30 p.m.

The alleged male offender is described as between 35 and 45 years old, 6 feet tall, with dark hair and hazel eyes. The man has a distinguished scar on the right side of his face, which starts under his nose, circles out around his mouth and ends on his chin. The scar is described as being similar to the shape of an anchor. The man also has a tattoo on his fingers in the form of letters, but it is unknown what the letters spell

During a press conference Friday, May 11, Waldo County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jeff Trafton said the police received a tip on Monday, May 7, that they are currently pursuing. However, Trafton said the tip does not look like it will lead to an arrest.

Trafton said the male offender approached the 61-year-old victim and told her he was a former renter at her residence. He told the woman he left some items under the back porch and asked if he could retrieve them, Trafton said. When the woman followed the man behind the house she was assaulted to the point where she may have lost consciousness, Trafton said.

The residence, which was only identified as being near the Stockton Springs Elementary School, is located off of the “main drag.” Trafton said.

Police say the male offender was driving a blue car that had a large white decal or emblem on the hood.

Since details of the incident were released to the media, Trafton said police have received about four or five tips.

“I just took a call from a young man who said Dodge Neons often have an emblem painted on the car,” Trafton said. “No piece of info is too small.”

Physical evidence from the crime scene is being processed and Trafton said police are optimistic the evidence will help lead them to the perpetrator. Police are advising residents to continue to be vigilant.

Trafton said anyone with information about the case should call police, even if they feel the information may not be significant.

“Sometimes it’s those small details that break open a case,” he said.

Anyone with information about this case or the subject is asked to call the WCSO at 338-2040.
