After robbing the woman at knifepoint, the man sexually assaulted her.

Police described the suspect as an African American man between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-9 with a medium build, short black hair and a dark complexion. He was wearing a white Chicago Bulls jacket with red sleeves, blue jeans and black and white Air Jordan sneakers.
