Durham police are trying to identify a suspect in a sexual assault near Duke University's campus last week.

Investigators released a surveillance photo of the man.

A woman said she was walking on Swift Avenue near Duke University Road shortly after 10 a.m. November 30 when a man grabbed her, pulled out a knife, and took her into a wooded area where she was sexually assaulted.

He also took her debit card.

The suspect was described as a clean-shaven black male around 24 years old. He was reportedly wearing jeans, a gray t-shirt, and a black flight jacket with a hood.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Investigator B. Jones at (919) 560-4440, ext. 29330 or CrimeStoppers at (919) 683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrest in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
