STOCKTON SPRINGS, Maine — Police on Thursday released two images that officials hope will help them apprehend the man accused of violently sexually assaulting a 61-year-old woman Monday in her home.

The victim described her attacker as being between 35 and 45 years old and 6 feet tall. He has dark hair, hazel eyes and a distinctive, anchor-shaped facial scar on the right side of his face.

One image should give people a better idea of what the scar looks like, according to Lt. Jason Trundy of the Waldo County Sheriff’s Office.

The other image gives an example of what the assailant’s finger tattoos might look like. The word “hate” is possibly tattooed on his left fingers, according to the images released by police.

Police have had a few tips but nothing so far has panned out, Trundy said. He said that for various reasons, the police do not have a composite sketch they wish to release at this point.

The assailant was driving a blue car with a large white decal or emblem on the hood, according to the victim, who contacted police after the afternoon attack.

She was taken to a hospital where she was treated and then released, Detective Jason Bosco said Tuesday.

Police are planning to hold a press conference about the search for the rape suspect Friday morning at the sheriff’s office.

Anyone with information about the case can call the Waldo County Sheriff’s Department at 207-338-6786.
