Rape victim's car recovered, police continue search for wanted man

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The hunt continues for the man accused of kidnapping, raping and carjacking a woman after getting a ride from a Jackson nightclub.

Police, however, have recovered the vehicle stolen from the rape victim. The 2002 tan four-door Buick Century was found Sunday afternoon on Fairbanks Street.

Investigators say a 26-year-old woman was leaving Freelon's parking lot when a black male asked for a ride to his car. The woman said he pulled a gun and later sexually assaulted her in the Marriott Hotel parking garage.

Police say the wanted man dropped the victim off at the North Hills Apartments early Saturday after the ordeal ended.

The accused man is described as a thin, about 5 feet 5 inches tall with dread locks and he was last seen wearing an orange hoodie and blue jeans.
