A Michigan woman said she was raped by a man acting as a Good Samaritan who offered to help her after her car broke down Sunday morning.
According to WWJ, authorities said that the woman was sexually assaulted by a stranger that gave her a ride to a gas station after she broke down on the side of a road.
The woman told police that had she tried calling a few friends after she ran out of gas around 3:30 a.m., but was unable to get hold of anyone in the middle of the night.
The man drove the woman back to her vehicle.
WXYZ reported that the 48-year-old woman said while she was refueling her car, a lot of the gas spilled onto the ground because she did not have a nozzle. When she was just a few blocks from her home, the car broke down again.
Unbeknownst to her, the fake Good Samaritan had been following her and approached her with a gun as she attempted to put what was left in the container into the tank.
The suspect then sexually assaulted her before driving off.
“I was so scared because my back was to him… He put the gun up to my head. He was already choking me. He took my clothes off and raped me,” she said.
Police are now searching for a white male in his 20s with a stocky build. He was driving a dark-colored, four-door sedan.
