The Montcalm County Sheriff Department is looking for the man who assaulted a Stanton woman Sunday evening.

According to police, the 23-year-old woman was walking near a small lake in the Colby Ranch game area in Sidney Township about 10:30 p.m., on Sunday, July 1, when a man driving a red car approached her. The man reportedly made sexual advances toward the woman and became hostile when she refused. He then attacked and choked the woman, and attempted to sexually assault her. She was able to escape and call 911.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5-feet-11-inches, 30 to 40 years old, 250 pounds, with a big gut and shiny, bald head. He was wearing sunglasses, a red t-shirt, and cut-off blue jean shorts. The suspect vehicle was described a long red car, possibly an Oldsmobile.
