A 16-year-old reported being sexually assaulted in the parking lot of Hickman High School on Tuesday morning.

The girl told the school’s resource officer that a man approached her and sexually assaulted her in the lot around 10:30 a.m.

She described the suspect as a 6-foot-tall white male in his late 20s to 30s with a thin build and short, dark-blond hair. He was last seen wearing a green shirt and denim or khaki pants and driving a shiny new, full-size black truck.

Columbia police Sgt. John White said police are continuing to investigate. Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 875-8477. There is a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
