January 19, 2016: SHERIFF'S SPECIAL NEWS RELEASE
The Green County Sheriff’s Office continues to seek information regarding a suspect of an assault that occurred January 4th on Stateline Road in the rural Juda area. An earlier press release reported that the suspect had entered the home through an unlocked door. When confronted by the occupant, the suspect spoke briefly under the pretense of purchasing a barn on the property, and then knocked her to the floor before fleeing. Investigators believe the suspect was intent on committing a burglary before encountering a victim. With the assistance of the Janesville Police Department sketch artist, a composite image of the suspect was obtained and is now being provided to the public. He was further described as a white male in his mid-20s, approximately 5’8” to 5’9”, 160 pounds, with dark hair and dark facial hair. Anyone recognizing the individual in this sketch is requested to contact the Green County Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau at 608-328-9580. A copy of the suspect sketch is available under the press release section of the Green County Sheriff’s Office website at: greensheriff.com or our Facebook page.
