Corinth Police Chief David Lancaster said they were called to the park at 11:28 p.m. Thursday night where a man and woman reported being assaulted by a black male in his 20s who was wearing all black and a dark colored bandana at the time of the incident.
She was treated at the Magnolia Regional Health Center. The man was not treated for any physical injuries.
“I can’t give a lot of details at this point but we believe he raped the female,” Lancaster said. “She was transported to the hospital by ambulance.”
Lancaster said the suspect approached the two with a black handgun and then police believe he raped the woman.
Lancaster said anyone with information can call Corinth Detective Heather Glass at 286-3377 or Crimes Stoppers at 1-800-773-8477.
