A woman who was visiting a cemetery plot in Cape May Court House, N.J., Sunday evening was allegedly sexually assaulted by a man lying in wait behind her car, police say.

On Tuesday afternoon Middle Township Police released the first sketch of the woman's alleged assailant.

Around 8:45 on Sunday, a 29-year-old Avalon woman was sexually assaulted after walking back to her parked car in the Fairview Methodist Cemetery off Route 9, police say.

She struggled with the man and was able to break free, running to a house on Orbit Drive asking for the residents to call police. A resident of Orbit Drive called cops at about 8:54 p.m. Sunday, saying that a bleeding woman came to his home asking for help.

Police describe the suspect as a thin- to medium-built, fair complexion white male who is about 6-foot to 6-foot-2 in his early 30s, with dark eyes, dark hair and a buzz cut. He had a light beard on the sides of his face with heavier hair on his mustache and chin. The man was wearing shorts and a white baggy T-shirt.

The woman was brought to Cape Regional Medical Center where she was treated and released.

Anyone with information about this should call Middle Township Police Major Crimes Unit at 609.465.8700 or Cape May County Crime Stoppers at 609.465.2800.
