Philadelphia Police are looking for a man who they say sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl inside her car on Sept. 24 in North Philadelphia.

Around 10 p.m. last Tuesday, the man entered the teenager's car with a gun, forced her to drive to the 5900 block of North 21st Street and sexually assaulted her inside the car. He then fled on foot, northbound on 21st Street, according to police.

The suspect is described as a black man, between 20 and 30 years old, 6-foot-2 and weighing just over 200 pounds, with a light complexion and medium build. He was wearing a skull cap and had on a light gray Nike sweatshirt, blue jeans and black gloves.

The suspect also has a star tattoo on the left side of his neck.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Special Victims Unit at 215-685-3251.
