CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) - Police in Clayton are investigating the alleged sexual assault of a woman early Monday.
It happened around 12:30 am in the 7400 block of Byron in Clayton as the 23-year-old college student was getting out of her car.
A man approached her, displayed a dark-colored semi-automatic handgun, and robbed the victim.
He then sexually assaulted the woman, according to a police report.
The suspect’s described as a black male between 25-30 years of age, 5’6″ to 5’7″, 140 pounds.
