Police seek help in locating suspect
According to a press release from the Harrison County Sheriff’s Dept., on July 5, a Hardin Co., Ky., woman was taken at gunpoint and forced to drive across state lines into Harrison County by an unknown white male.
The victim had temporarily stopped alongside of the roadway near Lebanon Junction, just off of southbound Interstate 65 in Bullitt Co., Ky. An unknown male entered the victim’s vehicle and forced her to drive into Harrison County, where he later fled into a wooded area near Elizabeth.
The suspect has been described as a fair-skinned, white male in his mid-30s, approximately 5-foot-7, wearing a camouflage military-style jacket with a patch missing from above the left breast pocket. He also was described as having noticeable freckles, red buzzed hair with a minimal receding hair line and a possible scar above his upper lip.
The suspect was also said to have a speech impediment and pronounces his R’s as W’s.
Harrison County Lt. Detective Nick Smith said the delay in releasing the information was because police were gathering evidence in the case and working on a composite sketch of the suspect.
Police are asking anyone with information as to the identity and or location of the suspect to contact the Harrison County Sheriff’s Dept. at 738-2195.
