COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA (WFXG) -

The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office is trying to track down the man suspected of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl who has autism. On Wednesday, August 3, 2016, the child was walking near the Ridge Crossing Apartments, near South Belair Road and I-20. Investigators say the man took the child into the woods and sexually assaulted her.

A car of interest has been identified as a gray, 4-door Saturn Ion. (See the picture provided by the sheriff’s office.) Investigators believe the driver is a light-skinned black man, approximately 5’09”. He’s believed to be in his 20’s. The most detailed part of the description is his hair. It’s said to be shoulder-length and twisted, with red or orange tips.
