New surveillance pictures released in Emory rape investigation


DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - The DeKalb County Police Department in cooperation with Emory police have released new pictures of two vehicles of interest possibly related to assaults that have occurred near or around the Emory University area.
The assaults happened from December 2013 to February 2014, between the hours of 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. According to detectives, the assailant was described as a man in his mid-to-late 50s, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, with a reddish or brown beard. He was wearing a brown knit cap, a tan or brown jacket, dark blue jeans and brown boots.
According to detectives, one of the vehicles in question is an older model, dark colored, two-door pickup truck that has a diamond tool box in the rear.
Detectives have also identified a second vehicle of interest described as a dark-colored Jeep Cherokee which may have been in the area and could possibly assist in their investigation.

It was a sense of relief for some Emory students.

“A lot better. Maybe like they're closer to catching the guy or something,” said student Kristen Kelly.

Anyone with any information regarding either of these vehicles is asked to contact either the DeKalb County Department Special Victims Unit at 770-724-7710 or the Emory Police Department at 404-727-8005.
