MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC) - Police released a composite sketch Wednesday of a man wanted for a rape at The Abington apartments.

A 22-year-old mother told investigators she had just dropped her fiance off at work and returned to their apartment when a man with a gun rushed her around 5:30 a.m.

The victim told him she only had a little money in her purse. That is when he reportedly sexually assaulted her. She was able to run out the back door to escape.

"He just was saying don't scream or I'll shoot you in the head. Don't scream," the victim told WMC Action News in early August.

"I was just praying that I would make it through it. I told him I have children. They weren't with me so I just wanted to make it through for my children."

The woman recovered at Regional Medical Center with bleeding on her brain.

Police say the man had an average build and a short, unkempt afro. He was wearing a plaid short sleeve button down shirt, and blue jeans. His 4-door SUV possibly had light tinted windows and a gray trim.

Sex crimes investigators are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH. 

Several other rapes have occurred at this complex in February, and a man has been charged in those rapes.
