CORDOVA, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Memphis police are on the hunt for a violent rape suspect who is accused of attacking a woman near a busy intersection.

Police said they've gotten several tips after releasing a composite Wednesday.

Investigators are following up on all of them, but have not yet gotten a break in the case.

Everyone in the area of Germantown Parkway at Dexter Road is on the lookout.

"Well, I hope they catch him very soon, " said concerned resident Cynthia Jones.

Investigators said a 19-year-old woman was walking in the area between 11:15 p.m. and 3:40 a.m. on December 14.

Then a stranger driving a 90's model, dark-colored, 4-door Honda Accord forced her into his car, took her to another location, and physically and sexually assaulted her.

She got away, and helped investigators develop a composite sketch of her attacker.

There have not been any arrests yet.

If you can help, call Crimestoppers at 528-CASH.
