PHILADELPHIA -

Police say they're looking to find a man who raped a teenage girl at gunpoint Tuesday night in Olney.

The alleged attack occurred around 10 p.m. while the 17-year-old driver was stopped at a traffic light. Police say the man then forced her to drive to the 5900 block of North 21st Street, where she was sexually assaulted inside the vehicle.

After the attack, the man ran away northbound on 21st Street.

On Monday, police released a sketch showing the man who they said is wanted for rape. He's described as black, between the ages of 20 and 30, 6-feet-2-inches tall, weighing 210 pounds, with a light complexion and a medium build. He had sideburns, wore a skull cap and for clothing wore a light-gray Nike sweatshirt, blue jeans and black leather-type gloves. He also had a "star" tattoo on the left side of his neck.

Anyone who might have information about this case is urged to call the police department's Special Victims Unit at 215-685-3251.
