Kansas City police have released a sketch of the suspect who surprised a woman at a Waldo car wash at 6 a.m Sunday. A young woman was about to vacuum her car when a man wearing a ski mask forced her into the passenger seat, slamming her head against the dashboard.

The man put a knife to the woman's head and warned her not to run. He took $45 from her purse and fled the scene.

Police are reportedly investigating a link between the attack at the car wash and the sexual assault of a woman on the Trolley Track Trail in June. Details of the crimes are similar.

The ski mask did not prevent the woman robbed at the car wash from working with a forensic sketch artist. According to Police Chief James Corwin's blog, the victim described the suspect as a white male about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 150 to 160 pounds. He had brown hair and appeared to be about 24 years old.

Anyone with information about the suspect is encouraged to call police or the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
