FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — A man grabbed a woman out of a parking lot at gunpoint, drove her to another area and sexually assaulted her in Fayetteville early Sunday morning, police said.

The investigation revealed that around 12:30 a.m. the woman was in a parking lot along the 700 block of Blue Street when the suspect pulled into the parking lot in a black car, possibly a newer Dodge, a news release from Fayetteville police said.
“The suspect then flagged down the victim and pointed a silver and black in color handgun at the victim, coercing her to get into his vehicle,” the police news release said.
