THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville police are looking for a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman.

The victim told police she was walking along Magnolia Street and Augusta Avenue around 4:30 a.m. Friday, when she was approached by three men who tried to steal her purse.

She said when they couldn't find any valuables, one of the men sexually assaulted her.

Major Eric Hampton with the Thomasville Police Department said, “When people are out at night, we ask that people don't go out at night alone. Of course, even if you're out with a group, you need some sort of communication or a cell phone that you can call 911 if you need assistance.”

If you have any information that could help with this investigation, you are asked to call the Thomasville Investigation Unit at 229-227-3302.
