STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. -- The Stafford County Sheriff’s Office shared a photo of the shirt the man who sexually assaulted a woman in a ditch left behind after the attack.

He was described to be 5’8” to 5’9” and 170 to 180 pounds. He has black hair and a short black beard.

He was wearing light colored blue jeans and a sleeveless white tank top under an orange, blue, and white plaid long sleeved shirt.

He spoke Spanish and broken English.

The suspect vehicle was described as a dark colored SUV.
