Between the hours of 1:28 and 3 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 14 the male suspect gave the female victim a ride from Old Town Scottsdale, which police officials say could be around the Bottled Blonde bar area, according to a press release.

The suspect then drove the victim to Paiute Park, 3210 N. 66th St. where she was sexually assaulted, the release states.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic or Native American male between 20 to 30 years of age.

The suspect has medium length dark hair and what was described as a nose with a “crooked bridge.” He was last seen wearing jeans with a white colored shirt. The suspect is believed to speak with a Spanish accent.

The possible suspect vehicle is a newer model, silver or white, two door passenger car, with dark leather seats.
