Police have recovered the stolen cell phone of a Stone Mountain church worker who was attacked on Feb. 26.
DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said detectives have not identified a suspect in the assault case of a female worker at St. Timothy United Methodist Church at 5365 Memorial Drive.
According to police, the 53-year-old victim was working in a church office around 3:30 p.m. when she answered an exterior office door. Once the door opened, the suspect forced his way into the building, where he sexually and physically assaulted the woman.
The man then robbed the victim of some belongings, including a cell phone. Police said the phone was later sold to a person near Underground Atlanta.
DeKalb detectives are looking for the suspect described as a 6-foot-2 Black male, age 40-50, and weighing approximately 180 pounds.
