Warwick detectives investigating the serious assault of a woman in the Glennie Heights area of Warwick on Tuesday evening have released a ‘comfit’ image of a man who may be able to assist with their investigations.
A Queensland Police Media statement issued early this afternoon, Thursday 4 October, says police investigations into the assault “are continuing”.
The woman stopped on the side of the road in Rose Street, between Horsman and Hawker roads, at around 6.15pm on Tuesday of this week when her vehicle, a white 1998 Nissan Patrol, broke down.
A man driving a white utility stopped in front of her vehicle and offered to help.
They worked under the bonnet of her vehicle for a short period of time before the woman walked to the rear of her car.
The man followed and slammed her head into the vehicle, knocking her unconscious before further assaulting her.
Police are understood to also be investigating sexual assault.
The man fled in his vehicle – a white single cab utility with silver tray back and sides.
He is described as Caucasian, aged between 30 to 40, with a chubby build, short dark hair and a full dark beard and was approximately 175cm tall.
He was wearing a dark blue tradie shirt with sleeves rolled up, matching shorts and tradie-style boots.
The woman was treated at Warwick Hospital that evening and later released.
The assault occurred on Rose Street, on the left-hand side of the road, approximately 50 metres past the intersection with Horsman Road, just south of the Warwick Golf Course.
Anyone who may have noticed the vehicles on Rose Street or has any information which could assist with police investigations is urged to contact the Warwick Police Station on 4660 4444 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 300 000.
