Police investigate sexual assault

Investigators are trying to find a man who offered to help a stranded couple, then tried to sexually assault the wife.

It happened late last night on U.S. 25, near Cunningham Farm in Scott County. The sheriff's department says the couple had run out of gas. A man stopped and offered to take the wife to a gas station while the husband stayed with their car. On the way to get gas, the man allegedly pulled over and tried to attack the woman. She was able to get away. The News-Graphic reports the attacker took off once she got out of the car and hasn't been caught.
