Investigators are looking for the man who sexually assaulted a woman behind a Camden bar.

The Camden County Police Department has released a sketch of the man wanted for approaching a woman, forcing her behind a Dumpster and sexually assaulting her near the Off Broadway Lounge on the 500 block of Spruce Street.

Police said detectives are working to determine if the suspect in the Thursday morning attack is also behind other recent assaults along the Broadway corridor.

Drugs or prostitution have been factors in some of the other assaults, police said.

The suspect is described as Hispanic, 5 feet 7 inches tall and 170 pounds. In the Thursday incident, he was wearing a white T-shirt, gray shorts, a black cap and high-top Nike Air Jordan sneakers with red and white soles.

Anyone with information should call police at 856-757-7042.
