Tuscaloosa Police Looking for Robbery, Rape, Kidnapping Suspect
Tuscaloosa police are looking for a rape suspect who they believe kidnapped a woman from the University Mall parking lot on Black Friday.
Authorities have said the suspect, identified as 17 year old Cedrick Lamar Collins should be considered armed and dangerous.
The 19 year old female victim told officers that a man approached her car at 7:30 am and asked to use her cell phone. When she agreed, the suspect got into her car, said he had a gun and forced her to drive to an ATM and withdraw money from her account.
Investigators say the suspect then forced the victim to drive to an abandoned property off of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and sexually assaulted her.
The victim contacted police and was treated at DCH.
Collins is described as 6 foot tall, weighing 160 lbs. If you see him, do not approach him but contact Tuscaloosa Police at 205-349-2121 or any law enforcement agency.
