Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a man suspected in attempted rape and robbery in the Madison Valley.

On August 31st at about 5:00 p.m., the suspect entered a business in Madison Valley, brandished a knife, and demanded money from a female employee. He then forced the woman into another room where he assaulted her and attempted to rape her at knifepoint. The man fled when another employee interrupted the attack.

Detectives have identified the suspect as Jordan Alexander, and there is a warrant for his arrest. He is a 33-year-old Black male, 6’1”, slim build, with a shaved head. During the attack, he was wearing an orange shirt under a long-sleeved button-down shirt with a checkered pattern, an orange hat, jeans, and black work boots.

In incidents from previous years, Alexander has attempted to disguise himself by wearing a head wrap, mask, sunglasses and light-colored make up.

He is known to frequent Capitol Hill, especially the areas around 27th Avenue East/East Madison Street, Pine Street/Broadway, 22nd Avenue East/East Madison Street, and Cal Anderson Park.

If seen, please do not attempt to contact Alexander – call 911.
