ELRENO, Okla. - An El Reno teen is attacked, and police said the man who did it is nowhere to be found.

The girl was feeding stray kittens when the attack happened in broad daylight.

"El Reno 911."

"My sister, she is lying here on the floor."

"She said she was going for a walk and a man came up behind her."

"She has grab marks, and she said that he had a knife."

Investigators said he dragged the girl into the bushes at knife point.

"She has some marks around her neck, a small puncture to her side and she was covered with mud and dirt,” said El Reno Police Department Lt. Van Gillock.

Police said the 18-year-old was feeding stray kittens Saturday evening but, not long after she walked outside, she was attacked.

"Someone grabbed her from behind with something like a scarf or something of that nature around her face and throat and dragged her to a location believed to be some bushes,” Gillock said.

Detectives said she blacked out from being chocked and, when she woke up, her shorts had been pulled down, and the man was gone.

NewsChannel 4 talked to the girl's family, and she is doing okay but is obviously traumatized.

Police said they are working with the OSBI to draw a sketch of the suspect but, so far, don't have many leads.

Meanwhile, neighbors are on the lookout.

"I want to know where he's at and if he's lingering around watching people,” said one resident.

The suspect is described as a tanned or dark skinned male between 30-40 years of age with a possible beard and wearing glasses.
