Portage police are investigating a sexual assault reported to have taken place Saturday afternoon in Imagination Glen Park. 

According to a police report, around 12:56 p.m. officers responded to the park on a call that a 27-year-old woman had reported being sexually assaulted in a park portable restroom. 

The victim told police that she went to use the restroom and upon exiting was pushed back inside by a male suspect who allegedly displayed a handgun.

Once inside, the victim said she was assaulted but at some point was able to break free and call 911.

At that point the suspect reportedly returned to his vehicle and left the area.

The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 5-foot-6, 170 to 180 pounds and between 25 and 35 years of age. The suspect was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt, gray and black shorts, a black stocking cap, and dark-colored athletic shoes with some white on them. He also had on a skull ring and had a dark tattoo that wrapped around his left forearm.

The suspect’s vehicle is described as a black Mitsubishi Outlander or ASX with a Harley Davidson front license plate.
