The Harris County Sheriff's Office Adult Sex Crimes Division has released a composite sketch of the suspect who claimed to be a police officer, then pistol-whipped and sexually assaulted a woman Thursday in north Harris County.

The 47-year-old female victim was walking along FM 1960 near Kuykendahl in north Harris County when she was approached by a man in a silver, 2-door Toyota. He told her he was an undercover police officer, that the neighborhood wasn't safe, and that he would give her a ride. The woman got into his car but instead of taking her to where she was going, he drove her to a business center where he pistol whipped and sexually assaulted her.

He then drove her to the area of FM 1960 and Imperial Valley where he dropped her off.

The suspect is described as a black male, possibly in his early 30s, 5'11" to 6' tall, slim build. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt and red or black pants. He may go by the name of Patrick.
