A struggle ensued with the assailant allegedly putting dirt and grass in the victim's mouth in an attempt to silence her. The woman's shirt was ripped and her pants leg cut with what was thought to be a kitchen knife

When police arrived the 18-year-old woman was  very upset and nervous, and had torn clothing and multiple red marks on her arms and neck. 

The suspect is described as a black male wearing a red T-shirt with yellow lettering on it, and either dark blue or black baggy pants.

The early morning incident on Colorado Street was documented as an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony offense still being investigated by police.
